How Hospice and Palliative Care Make a Difference
During National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, we at Calvary Hospital are doing our best to raise our voices and remind the public how much these programs mean to patients and their families.
There are many ways hospice and palliative programs help people:
- Hospice and palliative care professionals work to remedy symptoms including pain and shortness of breath, to optimize the quality of life.
- Emotional and spiritual support is also an important component of hospice and palliative care, giving patients and their loved ones the caring support they need to maintain the parts of their life that are most meaningful to them personally.
