Maylath Valley Health Systems' Hospice provides comforting care for individuals and their caregivers faced with a serious illness, when curative treatment is no longer the patient’s choice or option. Many families are fearful to choose Hospice care, as they believe it sends a message of no hope. This is not true. Hospice maintains a sense of hopefulness, allowing you and your family to make the best of each day. Hospice care is provided in the patient’s home or a home-like setting, such as a nursing home or assisted living facility.
