Sonata Hospice CareHospice care is comfort-centered care (often referred to as Palliative care). Hospice takes a holistic approach in caring for patients and their families while striving to meet the needs of the person with the life-limiting illness. Curative care focuses on curing the illness, while palliative care is centered on maintaining patient comfort when a cure is no longer possible or the risks of treatment outweigh the possible benefits of such treatment. This special way of caring promotes the highest degree of comfort, dignity and peace for all involved and includes addressing the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients and families. Importantly, hospice adapts to the changes as the illness progresses, while guiding the patient and family through the changing goals of care. Hospice is a palliative care program that specializes in the care and issues at the end- of- life.
