Hospice patients and their loved ones have the ability to choose when and where to receive care. Some end of life patients choose to remain in the hospital or other health care facility in which they were previously receiving medical treatments for their illness. Others prefer to transition back into their home environment, where they can receive personal care in a place in which they feel most comfortable and at ease, surrounded by those they love.
Hospice care also includes a wide variety of options in terms of the types of services available. Depending on the patient’s needs and desires, care can include everything from pain management and physical therapy to spiritual counseling and nutritional guidance. The comprehensive services available at Hospice Care of the Lowcountry also include a number of enrichment options, such as music and pet therapy.
We customize every care plan we develop to meet the unique needs and preferences of each individual patient.
