When it comes to hospice care, there are several misconceptions about hospice care, benefits, services provided and more. Read on to learn the truth about common myths about hospice care.
MYTH: “Hospice is where you go when there is nothing more a doctor can do.”
FACT: Hospice care is designed for patients with life-limiting illness. Hospice is not where you go to die, but rather Gulfside Hospice professionals are trained to assist patients in living their lives fully, completely and without pain until the end of their lives. Hospice is about living life to the fullest and making every day count.
“My grandmother, Patricia, was in the final stages of breast cancer.
The team at Gulfside Hospice made her final days happy, peaceful and fun. She knew she was loved and cared for, and she was extremely grateful for everything. Your Hospice Care Center was not only amazing for her, but its team was also extremely kind and compassionate towards us, her family.
I’m grateful beyond words that you provided her with a good quality of life while she was in your care.” - Rachel
