The of Hospice Care
As you prepare for your final journey, Active Hospice aims to decrease stress and provide time for more enjoyable moments, allowing all involved to have deeper understanding and better peace of mind. We do this by focusing on quality at, control over, and comfort care at the end of life.
Quality at the End of Life
Imagine a patient being able to spend time taking that hour plane ride over the valley they have always wanted to take or driving up the canyon for a picnic with their great-grand kids. That is the quality at the end of life that hospice can provide. Utah hospice care focuses on avoiding a prolonged dying experience, helps patient and their loved ones attain a sense of closure and understanding and provides lasting memories and more enjoyable moments.
Control over the End of Life
Instead of following the traditional course for end of life care, which involves seeking curative measures and frequent hospital or rehab stays, patients and their loved ones get to choose how and where they spend their precious time together. Hospice allows patients to remain in their place of residence, surrounded by those they love, doing what makes them happy, all the while leaving them with tremendous peace of mind.
Comfort Care at the End of Life
Hospice care focuses on symptom management and pain relief to keep patients comfortable. No painful procedures, tests, or countless hours of rehab focusing on a cure, only to delay the inevitable. Studies show that on average, individuals actually live longer on hospice when compared to traditional curative approaches. Hospice keeps patients comfortable and in control of their decisions and quality of life.
