Hospice is not a “place.”  It is a set of specialized services that are provided for persons with a life-limiting illness or when curative treatment is no longer an option.

Hospice care focuses on quality of life rather than longevity and is patient and family-centered.  The goal of hospice care is to improve quality of life by managing symptoms so that the last days may be spent with dignity and surrounded by friends and loved ones.  Hospice El Paso understands that loved ones are also on a difficult journey and may benefit from support, professional advice and supportive services.
