It's About How You Live
If you or someone you love is coping with a life-limiting illness, Enloe Hospice can guide you through the process. The Hospice philosophy of care focuses on quality of life. Our Hospice team members provide care to enable our patients to remain comfortably at home. The goal of our care is to relieve pain and other symptoms, and to enhance the quality of remaining life by keeping the patient as comfortable as possible in a familiar environment with family and friends. We focus our attention on the needs and priorities of our patients, and their loved ones, as they reach the end of life.
Who is Hospice Care For?
Hospice care is for any person who may be in the last six months of a serious illness, such as cancer, emphysema, heart failure, renal disease, neuromuscular disease, dementia or any other life-threatening illness. Enloe Hospice provides services to people of any age, including children.
