CompassionCare Hospice of Las Vegas, Nevada - Hospice Service Educational Resources Icon Introduction To Hospice Care Services – CompassionCare Hospice

Quality of life is the primary objective of Hospice Care. The focus shifts to improving the quality of life, health and well-being of a patient with a life-limiting illness, rather than continuing treatment plan with recovery from the life-limiting illness being the objective. Hospice care is designed to relieve pain and suffering of the patient through means of early identification, planning, assessment and treatment. A hospice care plan involves treatment of physical, psychological and spiritual health conditions.
