8 News Now is honoring Southwest Medical Hospice Care’s compassionate Hospice Care Heroes. Hospice volunteers play a critical role in supporting patients and their families.
The Southwest Medical Hospice Care team provides the right care at the right time – when and where patients and their families need it the most. Hospice is a vital component of end-of-life care especially for patients who wish to be at home and close to loved ones during their final days. The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of life during a patient’s last months by focusing on pain management, maximizing comfort and managing symptoms. Psychological, social and spiritual needs are also addressed.
