Description

The Hospice Care Service at St. Joseph's Hospital is designed to provide care with compassion and concern, based on the Judeo-Christian tradition, for individuals and their families facing terminal illness, at a time when the goal is not a cure. The emphasis of palliative care is on the control of pain and symptoms, or order to maximize the quality of life by addressing physical, emotional, social, cultural and spiritual needs. It is multidisciplinary in its approach and its scope and extends to include grief and bereavement.
