What is Hospice?
Hospice is a philosophy of care that is palliative in nature. That means the focus of care is on pain and symptom management. Hospice care is used to maintain quality of life and make every day the best it can be while living with a terminal illness. At LightBridge Hospice in North County San Diego, Hospice offers a holistic approach to wellbeing that provides medical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological support to patients and their families.
Why Should You Consider Hospice Care?
It’s difficult to think of losing a loved one. Hospice can be considered once curative treatment options have been exhausted or are no longer effective. Hospice is a comprehensive philosophy of care that gives terminally ill patients a higher quality of life and relief from pain, while supporting families, during a patient’s final days. This is done by providing both pain and symptom management, as well as holistic care, either in the comfort of the patient’s own home, or in an assisted living or care facility.
The pain management process at LightBridge Hospice in North County San Diego has a goal of balancing the alleviation of pain and a patient’s functional level. LightBridge tailors pain management to the needs of the patient, and strives to balance the patient’s quality of life with the retention of mental clarity. This allows patients and their family to continue building memories in their last days together. The ultimate goal of Hospice care is to increase the quality of life for the patient and their loved ones, giving both comfort and peace of mind while allowing dignity and grace in their final days.
