What is Hospice Care?


Dame Cicely SaundersDame Cicely Saunders doing hospiceHospice care, according to Dame Cicely Saunders, is specialized care for dying patients.  The term “hospice care” was first used in 1967 at St. Christopher’s Hospice in London.  The American Cancer Society says that hospice care “accepts death” and “manages symptoms so that a person’s last days may be spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by their loved ones.  Hospice gives you palliative care”.  That is to say, once in hospice care, there is no attempt to try to cure the disease or help you heal or improve your condition.

In other words, they help you die pain-free.

 

What is the Goal of Hospice Care?

The goal of hospice care is to help patients live their LAST days as alert and pain-free as possible since death has been accepted as coming quickly (6 months or less)…per the American Cancer Society.  This is great for a person who no longer has the ability to heal.  We applaud these efforts when there truly are no other options.

Unfortunately, it is our opinion that hospice care is suggested by physicians prematurely.  Since they have been taught to discredit the efficacy of alternative health, they do not offer it as a viable option.  In fact, most will suggest you agree to let them help you die without every suggesting the healing abilities of our services.  This truly  is not good for a person who still wants to live.  Many who were told they had no options that would allow them to live decided to come to our facility, Optimum Health, to see if healing was an option for them.  In most cases, their body’s healed beautifully!  It doesn’t hurt to try!
