Hospice is a philosophy of care intended to make people’s last days as comfortable as possible. When the time comes that a cure is no longer probable, hospice provides comfort and support to patients and families so they can focus on what matters most—living life.
Palliative care is available to help patients who are diagnosed with nearly any disease that causes chronic pain or other discomforting symptoms. The goal is to ease the burden of symptoms caused by the disease or by other treatments such as chemotherapy.
Dealing with illness can be a complicated process with lots of information. The Rainbow LIFE Institute offers many educational resources for family members, friends and caregivers to learn more about hospice and end-of-life care.
The grief process has no timeline as each individual’s experiences are personal and unique. At Rainbow Hospice and Palliative Care we have a well-earned reputation for providing comfort, care and compassion as family members work through the emotions of grieving.
