We never stop being human through the last stages of life. We never stop experiencing the full range of human emotions. Hospice Palliative Care is about dignity and respect. It is about a quality of life in the final stages.
We all have the right to choose. We have the right to select our own care setting and treatment. Hospice Palliative Care can be part of the team of specialized caregivers who help to make choices that are the most suitable for clients and their families
No one has to face the last stages of life alone. To touch someone with love is compassion. Hospice Palliative Care provides compassionate care and understanding to clients and families in the home, hospital, nursing home or hospice setting.
We all deserve to live free of pain and with the comfort of human touch. Hospice Palliative Care provides both physical and emotional comfort
Life is living until the last breath. To live is to experience the whole range of human emotions, intimacy, insights, actions, impulses and decisions. It is to address these experiences in our own way. This is how Hospice Palliative Care believes life should be lived in the last stages.
There are times when we need emotional strength and practical support. Hospice Palliative care meets the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the clients and of his or her loved ones. It is individualized care that stresses living fully until the very end of life with dignity and in comfort, surrounded by a circle of support. When the needs of the clients and patients are sensitively met, the journey towards death –though always difficult—can be a rich experience that gives meaning and completeness to life.
