We provide comfort, symptom management and physical, mental and spiritual support when there is a life-limiting illness. Our approach is to focus on you and your involved caregivers rather than curing the disease.
Hospice care, provided through physical, emotional and spiritual aspects, focuses on pain relief and symptom management rather than curative measures. Hospice care focuses on restoring dignity and a sense of personal fulfillment to the dying by providing choices, listening and caring. Hospice care enables you to live your finals days to the fullest extent possible, with purpose, dignity, grace and support. Hospice is patient-driven care. Our Hospice of Fayette County team will work with you, the patient, and your family to ensure that your end of life goals are met to their fullest.
