Many people believe that hospice is only used when all resources have been exhausted and when there is no hope left. This couldn't be further from the truth. It is not used as last resort, but rather, as a way for patients to spend quality time with their loved ones before they pass. It is meant to be a time for reflection and meaning.
Hospice care and services are delivered to the patient in their family member's home, assisted living center, group home, or wherever the patient lives.
