Hospice Care- The Philosophy Behind It
A hospice is an establishment that cares for terminally ill patients that have either opted not to continue with their treatment or who are unable to receive it. The hospice ensures that the patient is comfortable and well cared for at all times. The philosophy behind hospice care is:
- To alleviate the patient’s suffering as much as possible. The staff at the hospice does this by administering appropriate pain management medications, proper care and other techniques such as pain management without any medication as well. The objective is to help reduce the suffering and pain that the patient is going through.
- Old or ill people can go through mental as well as physical pain and this can be extremely difficult for their families to deal with. The patients may suffer from depression, as well as phases of helplessness, grief, and anger. At the hospice, you can be sure that your loved one will receive consistent support and care.
- The hospice also tries different ways to help the patient experience things they feel they have missed out on or even help them mend relationships with their family members or friends.
