What is hospice care? Unlike palliative care, hospice care is intended for patients at the end of life. Hospice care may be right for you if you have been diagnosed with a terminal or life-limiting condition and you wish to understand all of your options.
Talk to your doctors and caregivers about the best options for you.
The Aurora at Home Hospice Program offers a comprehensive range of services, including:
Our hospice program is designed to help adults and children with a variety of conditions. We'll work with you in your home or a nursing home, assisted living center or hospital.
