Hospice Care

Hospice Care

Hospice care is a special type of care created to provide sensitivity and support for people in the final phase of a terminal illness. Hospice also gives support to family members as they prepare for a loved one’s loss. Tanner Hospice Care enables patients to carry on an alert, pain-free life and to manage other symptoms so that their last days may be spent in comfort.

Overview

What is hospice care?

Hospice care is based on the idea that with medical and emotional assistance, death can be prepared for and can happen at home in an atmosphere of comfort, caring, kindness and dignity.

Tanner Hospice Care treats the emotional and spiritual needs of patients in addition to their physical needs, believing that the quality of life is as important as the length of life. With hospice care, patients are able to be at home, alert and free of pain, among the people and things they love.
