Hospice Care

We’re dedicated to supporting patients and their families during life’s most challenging times. Our hospice team is committed to being present in each and every moment offering emotional, medical, and spiritual support. We focus on the little things, because most times, the little things make all the difference in the world.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a specialized approach that focuses on providing comfort, rather than curative treatment, for patients with life-limiting illnesses, ensuring they live their final days with dignity and surrounded by loved ones.

Making the decision to transition a loved one to hospice care is a profound step. At Silverstone Health, we understand the emotional weight of this decision, and we are here to guide you through these sensitive discussions, prioritizing your loved one’s comfort and dignity.

Hospice Benefits

What are the Benefits of Hospice Care?

When is the Right
Time for Hospice Care?

Hospice care is suitable when curative treatments are no longer beneficial or desired and the focus shifts to comfort and quality of life. Some signs to consider include frequent hospitalizations, declining functional abilities, or the progression of a life-limiting illness.

Understanding Hospice Care
  • When is hospice care appropriate?

    Hospice care is typically considered when a physician believes curative treatment is no longer working, and a patient has six months or less to live if the illness follows its usual course.

  • Does hospice care mean giving up on treatment?

    No. Choosing hospice doesn’t mean giving up hope or treatment. It means the focus shifts to comfort and supportive care, ensuring patient’s days are emotionally fulfilling and pain-free as possible.

  • Where is hospice care provided?

    Hospice care can be provided wherever the patient calls home, whether it’s in their own house, a family member’s home, a hospice facility, or even a long-term care establishment like a nursing home.
