What Is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is a holistic approach to palliative or end-of-life care, focused on creating a comfortable, compassionate experience for our patients. St. Margaret’s Hospice, located in New Orleans, is dedicated to ensuring our patients can live out the rest of their lives with peaceful dignity. Our services are not an aggressive treatment program, but our patients receive personalized pain management and emotional support. Because hospice is a kind of palliative care, our objective is to treat the symptoms and not the illness. When given a six-month life expectancy, many patients prefer end-of-life care that avoids heroic measures and focuses on the patient's quality of life.
