When you and your loved one make the choice to forgo curative care, hospice is the ideal alternative. At Serenity Hospice & Palliative Care, we focus on end of life enjoyment by reducing the symptoms associated with the illness while providing adequate pain management. This compassionate and caring approach provides an enhanced quality of life that allows our patients to live out their last years in contentment and fulfillment.
The decision to forgo curative care often occurs with a diagnosis from a physician of six months or less. We understand how challenging this can be and so we offer a network of support including bereavement support services for family and community members after the loss of a loved one. At Serenity Hospice & Palliative Care, we are focused on supporting the needs of our patients and their family members with a wide range of different services.
When Hospice Care is Needed
You may be wondering when is an appropriate time to get hospice care for your loved one. If your loved one has experienced a decline in functionality, frequent hospitalization, bouts of forgetfulness, or progressive decline due to illness, hospice care can provide the assistance they need. At Serenity, in addition to offering physical care for pain management and symptom relief, we also provide emotional and spiritual support. We aim to promote peace and comfort during our patients’ end of life journeys.
