What is hospice?
Hospice offers comfort and support to patients with life-limiting illness and their families when life expectancy is six months or less if the illness runs its normal course. Our certified teams provide skilled medical, emotional and spiritual care to achieve the best possible quality of life with dignity, peace and comfort.
Hospice is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. HospiceCare in The Berkshires provides services wherever you are living so you may live your life as fully as possible while keeping comfortable in a place you call home, surrounded by people who care about you.
Exploring hospice shortly after a life-limiting diagnosis gives patients and their families time to understand all options for care and to choose those which offer the best quality of life. When the primary treatment goal is comfort rather than cure, hospice can provide the necessary care and support.
Care is covered by most insurance providers, and when you choose HospiceCare in The Berkshires, it is never too early to call.
