HOSPICE IS A PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Excellence, Dedication, Outcome
It is centered on the belief that people deserve dignity, support, and freedom from pain at the end stage of life. Choosing hospice care means making the decision to focus on comfort over cure, so that the patient can maintain a higher quality of life for as long as possible. Excel Hospice Care has an interdisciplinary team of compassionate professionals who are dedicated to providing emotional, physical, and spiritual support to patients in the last phases of a life-limiting illness. The care we provide is designed to assist both the patient and their family, making it possible for them to maintain independence for as long as they are able, in familiar surroundings.
At Excel Hospice Care, we understand that every individual is unique.
Under the supervision of the patient’s physician, we collaborate with other disciplines to tailor a well-coordinated, comprehensive plan of care that best suits the patient’s needs and wishes. If your loved one is need of hospice care, contact Excel Hospice care today.
