OLEAN – November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, and HomeCare & Hospice is joining hospices across the country in reaching out to raise awareness about the highest quality care for people coping with life-limiting illness.
Every year, more than 1.5 million people living with a life-limiting illness receive care from hospice and palliative care providers in the United States.
Behind the remarkable efforts of nurses, aides, social workers and spiritual care professionals, HomeCare & Hospice cares for hundreds of patients and families annually in communities in Cattaraugus, Allegany, Genesee and Wyoming counties.
“The focus of our dedicated, professional caregivers isn’t just on delivering high quality medical care. Together, hospice team members also make certain that patients and families are surrounded by dignity, respect, and loving acceptance during life’s most profound journey,” said Carol Mahoney, HomeCare & Hospice CEO. “Through specialized care addressing pain and symptom management, we see many families experience more meaningful moments together with their loved one. Hospice is about living fully and in comfort, despite a terminal diagnosis.”
HomeCare & Hospice’s care programs provide pain management, symptom control, and psychosocial support to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Hospice care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life.
