Hospice Care in St. Louis County
Hospice care is for those with a terminal illness whose life expectancy is six months or less. The focus of hospice care is to manage pain and symptom relief in the final months of life. When these aspects of a terminal illness are dealt with proactively, a person’s quality of life greatly improves, and he or she can better enjoy those last months with friends and family.
