About Connecticut Hospice
Hospice care provides comfort care for seniors who are facing the final weeks or days of their lives. Generally, seniors in hospice care have a terminal condition or illness that is no longer treatable through conventional medicine. Hospice provides these seniors with palliative care, and does not attempt to cure or treat any condition. They focus on pain relief and providing spiritual and emotional support for seniors and their family members as they go through this often emotional and difficult time in their lives, and can give seniors the comfort that they need to die with dignity.
You can get hospice care a couple of different ways. One way is to receive the care in your home from an in-home care provider. This is a good option for those who wish to spend their final days in the comfort of familiar surroundings. The other option is a hospice care facility where there is a full staff to attend to the needs and care of your loved one.
