Doctors sometimes see a terminal diagnosis as a failure — but death is a natural part of life. Hospice lets you deal with the end of your life — whether it’s weeks or, ideally, months — in comfort from pain. It’s not a place. It’s a treatment plan that includes innovative services like music therapy and massage. It adds to your life, it doesn’t take away. You don’t go to hospice to die, you go to live more fully.
