What Is Hospice Care,
Who Needs It, And Why

Hospice care is a special type of health care that, typically, focuses on providing a certain quality of life for people who are experiencing a life-limiting illness. Provista’s hospice care focuses on treating the person and symptoms of the disease, rather than treating the disease itself. It includes the patient and their family in the decision-making process. In general, hospice care must be used when the person is expected to live around 6 months or less. A good case practice is that the person with the illness needs to have a discussion with his/her family members and doctor to decide when they should begin the hospice care.

All throughout the process, the team of hospice physicians, nurses, chaplains, medical workers, and other healthcare specialists at Provista Healthcare will be there with the family members and the patient. They together will provide the emotional, physical, and spiritual support needed to make the best decisions that will better benefit the patient.

Quality Hospice Care

Hospice care improves the overall quality of the patient’s life by managing the pain and other symptoms related to the illness of the patient. Our hospice care services at Provista are designed to help the patient understand that they always have someone they can lean on, receive the much-needed support, and seek guidance in this difficult time. Contrary to common belief, hospice care is not a life sentence for the patient and it also does not mean that the family is giving up hope.
