Hospice is a philosophy and a way of caring for individuals living with serious illnesses who no longer benefit from curative treatments. When the time comes that a cure is no longer probable, hospice embraces the patient and family as they focus on comfort and the end of life.

When facing serious illness, it is important for patients and families to remember that there is much to hope for and wish for in their lives. Hospice helps people achieve their goals and supports the family as they care for their loved one.

People anticipate and prepare for the birth of a baby. Rainbow Hospice and Palliative Care teaches people how to make the same preparations for the end of life and to make the most of the time given. To learn more about hospice, please visit our introduction to hospice page below,
