About Comfort Care Hospice
“The goal of Comfort Care Hospice is to enable people with life-limiting illness to make decisions about how, and where, they want to spend the rest of their lives,” says Dr. Andrew Duxbury, Medical Director for Comfort Care Hospice. Most experts agree, hospice should be considered when the patient is having increased difficulty managing serious pain or other symptoms, when their treatment is no longer working, or when treatment seems to cause more pain and discomfort than good. Hospice can also assist family members who are feeling overwhelmed by not only providing physical support but also emotional and spiritual support to both the patient and the family. For those with a terminal illness, Comfort Care provides the care necessary for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being and is available 24 hours/7 days a week. Comfort Care Hospice services can be provided at the patient's home, in a nursing home, in an assisted living facility, or in a hospital. For more information visit comfortcarehospice.org
