Hospice & Palliative Care
Magnolia Hospice offers medical care toward a different goal:
maintaining or improving quality of life for someone whose illness, disease or condition is unlikely to be cured.
Each patient’s individualized care plan is updated as needed to address the physical, emotional and spiritual pain that often accompanies terminal illness. Hospice care also offers practical support for the caregiver(s) during the illness and grief support after the death. Hospice is something more that is available to the patient and the entire family when curative measures have been exhausted and life prognosis is six months or less.
What is Hospice?
Hospice is a specialized type of care for those facing a life-limiting illness, their families and their caregivers.
Hospice care addresses the patient’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
Hospice care also helps the patient’s family caregivers.
Where Care Takes Place
Hospice care takes place in the patient’s home or in a home-like setting.
Managing Pain & Symptoms
Hospice care concentrates on managing a patient’s pain and other symptoms so that the patient may live as comfortable as possible and make the most of the time that remains.
Quality of Life
Hospice care believes the quality of life to be as important as length of life.
