“A hospice program provides palliative care to terminally ill patients, and supportive services to patients, their families, and significant others, 24 hours a day in both home and inpatient settings.  Physical, social, spiritual, and emotional care is provided during the last stages of illness, during the dying process, and during bereavement by a medically directed interdisciplinary team consisting of patient/family, professionals, and volunteers.”
