What is hospice care?

Hospice begins when a terminally ill person chooses care options focused on comfort and symptom relief rather than on a cure. Hospice medical and supportive care is usually provided where the person lives. When 24-hour intensive hospice care is required The Midwest CareCenter Hospice Suite at NCH offers medical care in a comfortable, homelike environment.

Hospice care focuses on your quality of life living with dignity, free of pain and other distressing symptoms as well as providing support for your loved ones. At The Midwest CareCenter Hospice Suite, we will:

  • Address your intensive medical care needs including pain, nausea, vomiting, agitation, or respiratory distress.
  • Provide psychosocial and spiritual support for concerns with stress, anxiety, faith and loss, readily available for you and your loved ones.
