PALLIATIVE CARE & HOSPICE: TWO WAYS TO CARE

 When a resident of GHBC suffers from a chronic disease or is approaching the end of his or her life, Goodwin House provides services through Palliative Care and Hospice. Most hospice and palliative care services are covered by Medicare and other health insurance plans for the individuals who meet eligibility requirements.

Palliative Care is a method of administering “comfort” care and may include curative treatments. It provides consultation and services to help an individual with a chronic or life-limiting disease or condition make decisions about treatment and medication to minimize discomfort and maximize quality of life. Patients can receive Palliative Care consultations at any stage of illness, whether or not it is terminal.

Hospice is a coordinated, multi-disciplinary approach to enhance quality of life for an individual and his/her loved ones after a physician has determined that life will likely end within six months. After discussion, the patient and/or his/her family may decide to cease curative treatments and enter the hospice program.

The goal of both palliative care and hospice is to assure that the wishes of each individual are respected and honored.
