Cardinal Hospice offers terminal patients a more dignified and peaceful alternative to aggressive treatment (that can sometimes decrease not only the quantity of life but also the quality.)
While Cardinal Hospice neither hastens nor postpones dying, Cardinal Hospice helps patients spend their final months in a familiar, comfortable environment (such as their private home, Nursing Home, or Assisted Living,) with and near their loved ones, without limited access.
Cardinal Hospice focuses on all aspects of a patient's life and comfort, to include: not only physical, but emotional, social, and spiritual needs. An individualized plan of care is developed with the patient and family upon admit, and becomes updated through
