For many reasons, patients with a serious or incurable illness eventually decide to stop treatment and testing in exchange for improved comfort and quality of life. During this transition, Hunterdon Hospice provides a bundle of services to support a patient and their family.
The hospice philosophy centers on care for the patient in the context of his or her family and community. Hospice emphasizes comfort and quality of life -- not length of life, which sets it apart from many traditional health disciplines. Hospice is for people with a progressive, life-limiting disease and their families and caregivers. Care and supportive services are brought to the patient, whether they live in a personal residence, assisted living or nursing home setting, and help to make each day the best that it can be. By bringing the care to you, patients and families can focus on being together.
