  • What Hospice Is
    Hospice is a way of providing care for a person who is terminally ill and focuses on quality of life. It is most helpful during the final six months of life expectancy. It is not a “death bed” service for people in the last 48 hours of life and it neither hastens nor prolongs death. Hospice believes in the right of people to know accurately and honestly what is happening to them so they can choose how they want to spend the remaining amount of time in the most purposeful and meaningful ways. Hospice is for people who have any terminal illness and it offers the hope of dignity and comfort. Hospice is not a resignation to hopelessness and helplessness. Hospice is a family-oriented program that helps families and/or friends care for their loved one in their home, Nursing Home, or Assisted Living Community. Medicare, Medicaid, and many other insurance providers cover Hospice. Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care serves most of Connecticut including the shoreline to Madison.
