“Let’s Try A Different Approach To Care…” There is a misconception that hospice is only for patients when there is “nothing else that can be done”. This is not true. Hospice is about a different approach to care that focuses on treating pain and the symptoms that cause pain and discomfort. Agape Hospice Care believes in providing patients with the highest quality of life by focusing on pain and sympton management while supporting the patient and family unit as a whole. We believe in a team approach that involves the patient, family, hospice clinical team and attending physician. What are the benefits of an earlier referral to hospice?
