The vast majority of Americans say what they want at the end of life is to die in their own homes, as comfortable and pain-free as possible. The hospice philosophy is about making sure that a patient’s death experience reflects his or her wishes. Here are five ways that Hospice & Palliative Care Lake Norman helps to deliver this:

Hospice gives you comfort. Hospice teams are experts at managing life-limiting illness.

Hospice gives you peace. Beyond physical relief, hospice strives to help patients and families find emotional and spiritual comfort during what is often a traumatic time.

We also give patients and families peace of mind with by providing a social worker to help navigate paperwork and other difficult issues that may arise.
