What is Hospice?
In simplest terms, hospice is comfort care for individuals with terminal or life-limiting illnesses. It is an alternative to traditional health care models; specifically designed to meet the unique needs of those whose illness has progressed to an advanced stage.
New Dawn Health and Hospice helps patients:
- Remain in the familiar setting of their home or long-term care facility
- Realize relief from pain and discomfort
- Remain as active as possible
- Receive comfort and support so patients can maintain their self-control, independence, and dignity
New Dawn Health and Hospice’s role is to provide professional medical care, to manage pain and other symptoms, and to meet the social, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient and their family.
