Hospice (terminal illness care)
Care and support when it’s needed most
Prisma Health hospice helps patients with a terminal illness live the remainder of life as fully as possible in peace, comfort and dignity – and with less worry. Our kind doctors, nurses and volunteers provide care at home, in the hospital or in one of our nursing facilities.
Keep in mind that hospice isn't about giving up or stopping treatment. It’s about living with disease. Hospice care can even help some patients improve or stabilize.
Your Prisma Health doctor and hospice team develop a plan of care with the patient and family, focusing on patient goals.
