What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is a choice that enables the patient to live the highest quality of life until the end as defined by the patient’s own beliefs and values, in the comfort of his or her home and surrounded by family and friends.
Hospice provides relief from pain. Pain associated with a terminal illness can be frightening, debilitating, and dehumanizing. The trained staff at Hospice of Randolph has the skills and resources to monitor patients closely and permit them to live as pain-free, comfortable, and as full a life as possible.
Hospice provides support to help patients and families deal with any unresolved issues as well as coping with their feelings. Volunteers, pastoral counseling, grief counseling, and social workers to assist with legal and funeral arrangements are a part of this special care.
Only a licensed, certified hospice like Hospice of Randolph, can access the Hospice Medicare Benefit for you. This entitlement covers medications related to the primary illness, most durable medical equipment, and supplies. In-patient respite is also available to provide rest for the caregivers.
