By caring with compassion, HopeHealth transforms hurt into healing for people whose lives are touched by illness.
Caring Every Step of the Way
It’s helpful to think of our stages of care along a continuum:
- Recovery addresses the underlying cause of illness or injury. The goal is to heal and regain independence.
- Palliative care focuses on lessening the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to help individuals live as long and as well as possible. Care can be given at home or in a hospital or other setting.
- Hospice care is appropriate when a serious illness has advanced and the effort shifts from recovery to comfort and support for the patient and family.
- Grief support services, including counseling and support groups, are available to everyone.
