What is Hospice?
Hospice is a model of comfort, compassion-based care, and support for terminally ill patients and their families.
At Hospice of Montezuma, we believe that each of us has the right to die pain free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.
Our professionals and volunteers are dedicated to providing end of life care, support and guidance to all individuals and families.
Is it Time for Hospice?
Determining when to enter hospice can be a difficult task. It’s important to consider the concerns of both the patient and their family and loved ones.
You may receive hospice care any time after the diagnosis of a life-limiting illness. There are many benefits to early referral and admission including optimal pain management and symptom control as well as a more established relationship with your hospice team.
The earlier the referral, the more we can help.
