"Hospice went out of their way to support quality of life for my mom."
The goal of hospice care is to help you live in comfort and with dignity, surrounded by the warm and supportive presence of loved ones. Hospice treats the person, not the disease and emphasizes quality rather than length of life.

The primary goals of hospice care are to alleviate the patient's physical pain, provide symptom control, and to support the patient's caregivers and physician.
Hospice works with the patient and family to help alleviate the emotional stress that can be experienced during this very difficult time.
Spiritual care focuses on the spiritual being, not religious affiliation. Spiritual care visits are available to both patients and families
The men, women and young adults who volunteer their time, talent and energy for Niagara Hospice are truly unique individuals. Many choose to work with our families because of their own experience with losing a loved one. Others have not yet experienced such a personal loss, but truly want to help those families who are facing the day to day emotional and physical struggle of caring for their loved ones.
The emotional and spiritual components of hospice care can be especially meaningful to veterans who often face issues near the end of life relating to their military experiences. Support is even more crucial for veterans who do not have a strong support network of family and friends.
