Hospice Care

Hospice is a philosophy of care that incorporates palliative care principles in meeting the holistic needs of the person facing their last weeks or months of life.

Paying attention to the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspect of the person cared for, the hospice interdisciplinary team strives to relieve pain and suffering in all its dimensions and prepare the patient and family for the end of a life.

The focus of hospice is on caring, not curing. Hospice care can be provided wherever the patient resides, however, it is usually provided in the patient’s own home.

Hospice care is available in hospitals contracted with a hospice agency, in freestanding hospice facilities (including hospice homes), in nursing homes, and in other long-term care facilities. Hospice services are available to patients of any age and facing any illness.

Any person is welcome to contact hospice directly and obtain in-depth information relevant to their situation or to refer someone for hospice services. If you have any questions, please contact Kōkua Mau, or one of the state hospices listed below.
