Hospice care has been around for a long time. It became the concept we know today in the 1940s when Dame Cicely Saunders created the first hospice facility in London. Hospice care is often misinterpreted as giving up. This isn’t the case at all. Hospice care is end of life care for patients with diseases or conditions that are too advanced to cure. That’s why hospice focuses on the care of the patient instead of the cure. Hospice makes sure that the patient is as comfortable as they can possibly be. Comfort Care Hospice takes the core hospice values to heart, and we do everything we can to guide our patients and their families through their trying times.
