Hospice care focuses on comfort for patients whose illnesses could lead to their death in six months, or less. All treatment focuses on the best quality of life possible, and stopping aggressive treatments that often create their own side effects. The natural dying process is not interrupted, however the dying person is given maximum comfort. This includes physical, psychological and spiritual comfort. Treatments that do not aid comfort are halted, like the drawing of blood or needle sticks.Hospice Care
