AUDIO: This week on the Coastal File, we are talking to Doreen Kelly with South Coast Hospice and Palliative Care.
Hospice Care is a special healthcare option for patients and families who are faced with a terminal illness. Hospice provides comfort care when curative treatment is no longer the patient’s choice. Patient care takes place in the patient’s home or a care facility such as a Nursing Home or Adult Foster Care homes. Hospice serves patients of all ages and views the patient, his/her family and disease process from a holistic perspective. Hospice addresses the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient and family.
