Hospice care
What is hospice care?
Hospice is a part of palliative care that involves a team-oriented approach to quality medical care, pain and symptom management, as well as emotional and spiritual support tailored to each individual patient’s needs.
  • Hospice is available to anyone who has a life expectancy of six months or less.
  • Hospice provides medical equipment and medications related to terminal illnesses.
  • At KHCC, support is given to you as the caregiver, including social workers to talk to, and nurses and aides to teach you how to provide hands-on care.
