Rose Collins Hospice 05-28-2013



Hospice is a compassionate approach to care whose goal is to help people with serious illness live life fully, maintain their dignity and keep control over their lives. In medieval times, hospices were inns of rest which “lodged, cherished and refreshed” the Crusader, the sick and the dying. Today, Hospice provides medical care, emotional and spiritual support to people and their families facing life-limiting illness in homes, hospitals, adult facilities, nursing homes, group homes and hospice residences such as Hospice Buffalo House at Mitchell & St. John Baptist/Hospice Inpatient Unit. Hospice is available to any one with an illness whose life expectancy is measured in months, rather than years.
