Not everyone that uses hospice has pain or acute symptoms. Every circumstance is different and requires knowledgeable and experienced health care professionals to assess the patient’s needs.
OSF Hospice treats the person, not the disease.
Expert management of pain and symptoms in the terminal phase is a major concern of patients and their families. OSF Hospice understands that every person’s situation is unique and requires a team approach for proper end-of-life care.
By performing a thorough assessment, providing excellent nursing care and prescribing carefully selected medications, we strive to minimalize the patient’s discomfort while maximizing their quality of life.
In addition, physical and occupational therapists may assist you to be as mobile and self-sufficient as possible.
