If your loved one has a terminal illness, you should consider St. Louis hospice care. Hospice care provides comfort and support for people who are nearing the end of life by reducing pain and addressing physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Hospice provides the highest quality of care and comfort instead of treating the patient’s underlying disease.
When a loved one is ready for comfort care, choosing hospice care means avoiding unwanted hospitalizations, medical treatments, and medical procedures. Bethesda’s hospice team aims to support patients’ and caregiver’s wishes while helping them achieve their goals for care.
A Professional Caring Community
Our comprehensive and interdisciplinary hospice care is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including weekends and holidays. Care is provided by a team of professionals and volunteers to meet the needs of each patient. A hospice care team typically involves:
- Social workers
- Trained hospice volunteers
- Bereavement counselors
Additionally, many people decide to enroll in St. Louis hospice care early. By doing so, you and your loved one can develop a strong relationship with the hospice staff.
A Healthier & Longer Life
Studies show that consistent and competent hospice care helps people feel better and live longer, even if they have a terminal or incurable illness.
