Why Hospice?

Hospice treats you, not the disease. 

The focus is on care, not cure. You and your family's medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs are addressed by a team of hospice of El Paso or hospice of Las Cruces professionals and volunteers.  It affirms life and regards dying as a normal process.

Hospice considers your entire family.

You and your family are included in the decision making process. Hospice will help you and your family make choices about end-of-life issues and enable you to have greater control over these choices. Bereavement counseling is provided to your family for up to one year after your death.

Hospice offers supportive care, rather than curative treatment. 

Hospice will provide care and comfort when cure is no longer an option. Through ever advancing technology, pain and symptom control, hospice will enable you to live as fully and comfortably as possible.
