How Hospice Can Help
Hospice services are available to patients who no longer benefit from, and choose to forgo, curative treatment. The typical hospice patient has a life expectancy of six months or less, if the illness follows its expected course.
Patients who may benefit from hospice care are those in the final stages of any disease process, including chronic lung disease, congestive heart failure, AIDS, cancer, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and dementia, and other life-limiting, terminal illnesses.
Hospice offers help and support to the patient and their loved ones, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For hospice patients, help is just a phone call away.
At Hospice of the Carolina Foothills, we’re committed to providing hospice services that ensure a superior patient-family experience, whether at home, in a hospital, or in a facility such as a nursing home or assisted living community.
Patients routinely receive scheduled periodic in-home services of a nurse, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain and volunteer.
