• Hospice palliative care is designed to focus on the patient giving comfort, peace, dignity and as much meaning as possible to the life that remains.
• A residential hospice provides opportunity for community involvement; volunteering, financial support through planned giving, donations with tax receipts and a place to gather for bereavement support, public educational seminars and other activities.
• Hospice palliative care is about the right care in the right place at the right time by the right people.• Everyone should have the opportunity to choose where the last days of life are spent; home, hospital or hospice home.
