What is a Hospice?

HOSPICE CARE

A hospice service provides dedicated, holistic end-of-life care in the community and supports families and carers.

Hospices aim to meet their communities wish to die at home or a place of choice and seek to honour the hope for comfort, dignity, and peace at the end of life. Care is provided in a person’s home or in a home-like environment, in a way that welcomes, encourages, and supports families and carers.
