Understanding Your Needs
Hospice care is available for patients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and have a prognosis of 6 months or less. It is at this time that comfort care and symptom management become the primary focus and curative treatment is no longer the patient’s choice or option. If you or a loved one find yourself in this place, Hospice of Southern Illinois can help by providing information, answering questions or as a care provider. We understand what you are going through and have the experience to provide the assistance you need.
Our highly skilled and compassionate staff can provide personalize care in a setting that best meets the needs of each patient and family.
Grief involving the loss of a loved one or close friend brings forth a wide range of natural emotions and responses which may be difficult to understand or handle.
Many often ask if being a volunteer is sad? To which we reply absolutely not! Hospice is about living life to its fullest and making memories out of every-day that we have.
