What is Hospice?
Hospice is a special kind of care for patients who have life-limiting disease. As a hospice care provider, we believe that each individual should be free from any pain as they are in their end-of-life journey and that all of their families will receive the necessary support that they need; may it be emotional or spiritual.
- Treating the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of their patients.
- Providing care in the patient’s home or in a home-like setting.
- Supporting family and caregivers by offering counseling, training, and information.
- Helping patients live free from any pain and discomfort to ensure the best possible quality of life.
- Providing supplies, medicines, and equipment that are essential in maintaining the patient’s quality of life.
- Granting wishes and offering choices to the patients.
How Hospice Works?
Hospice offers high-quality, genuine care to individuals who can no longer benefit from curative treatment. Hospice patients usually have a life expectancy of six months or less.
The services are provided by a team of trained professionals that includes physicians, nurses, counselors, social workers, therapists, chaplains, aides, and volunteers.
The patient is usually referred to hospice by their primary physician but referrals can also be made by family members, friends, clergy, or other health professionals.
What Makes Hospice Different?
Hospice can create a great impact on the quality of life. Its goal is to empower patients by providing enough knowledge and information, to facilitate decision making. We guarantee you that our clinical staff members here at Royal Majesty Hospice, Inc. are experts and credible enough in controlling pain and managing symptoms.
