Hospice is a specialized form of home care which concentrates on comfort-oriented measures for individuals with terminal illnesses.
Electing to receive hospice care does not mean giving up hope. Instead it means curative treatments are no longer effective in arresting the disease's progression.
Hospice House, located on 14 wooded acres with streams and wildlife, has 16 patient rooms on the lower level with garden views.
There also is a family kitchen, a nondenominational chapel, bereavement center, family lounges, community gardens, walking paths and children's play area.
