Honoring those with life limiting illnesses

Apreva Cares

Hospice is comfort care intended to give those with terminal diagnosis’ the best possible quality of life. The goal is to promote a life free of pain and discomfort for the patient, as well as support their loved ones. By utilizing an integrated disciplinary team approach, hospice provides a whole team, for the whole person, for the whole family. Hospice care may be provided at patient’s home, a family member’s home, in a skilled facility, an assisted living, board and care, or the local hospital.

Physicians

Hospice physicians are specially trained and knowledgeable in the most effective and appropriate treatment of end of life symptoms. The Apreva Hospice physician will coordinate with the patient’s primary care physician to assist in providing the best route of care.  This allows the patients continued continuity of care.
