What is Hospice?
Hospice is a philosophy of care. It is palliative in nature and focuses on the person instead of the disease. After curative options have been exhausted for serious illness or injury, Hospice allows patients to maintain a higher quality of life by managing pain and symptoms. At LightBridge Hospice in San Diego County, our holistic approach to care provides patients and their families with spiritual, psychological, and emotional support in their final days together.
Why Should You Consider Hospice Care?
Losing a loved one is a difficult thing to think about. Hospice care aims to make a terminal patient’s final days filled with comfort, dignity, and peace of mind. This is done through comprehensive pain and symptom management that strikes a balance between pain level and mental acuity, as well as holistic care that provides spiritual, emotional, and psychological support to patients and their loved ones. Hospice care should be considered when curative treatments for illness are no longer effective or appropriate.

Hospice is a person-focused philosophy of care, and addresses the needs of the whole family in addition to the needs of the patient.
