WHAT IS HOSPICE CARE? Hospice care affirms the belief that it is important to make every moment of life as meaningful as possible, from the first days of a life-limiting illness to the last... to validate the quality rather than quantity of life...and to provide care to the patient and family reflecting a living expression of love, warmth, and compassion. Hospice Compassus provides services to relieve symptoms, manage pain, and give emotional and spiritual support. Hospice Compassus advocates and respects the right of the patient and family to: • Enjoy the best possible quality of life • Have their values and wishes honored • Experience dignity in their care • Receive care in their environment of choice • Know what to expect • Receive continued support
