The purpose of hospice is to provide individualized and ethical care to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical needs of people in the last phase of life, dying from a terminal illness.
Hospice reflects a spirit and philosophy of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying. This service makes it possible for those in the last stage of life to remain independent for as long as possible. It emphasizes control of pain and other symptoms and dying in familiar surroundings. This care is centered on the patient, family and caregiver. APEX Hospice and Palliative Care’s staff respects and responds to the unique differences in family and caregiver, lifestyle, values, and wishes.
