Defining 5 Important Goals of Hospice Care

Defining 5 Important Goals of Hospice Care Post Image

Making the transition into hospice care is a big decision. It can feel overwhelming at first, but with the right information, you can make your choice with confidence, ease, and peace of mind. To assist in your decision-making process, allow us to define five important goals of hospice care.

Medical Care

One of the first goals of hospice is medical care. During hospice, medical professionals work to provide the best possible care to patients to give them a better quality of life. The medical needs of each patient will vary depending on diagnosis and circumstance.

Personal Care

Personal care is also a primary goal of hospice. Due to terminal illnesses, hospice patients often have difficulties completing daily tasks. The purpose of personal care is to assist patients with everyday tasks and activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and moving around.

Pain Management

Another main focus of hospice care is pain management. The goal of pain management is to ensure patient comfort and to ease the symptoms of their condition. Pain management can involve the prescription of medications, massages, and daily exercise.


Counseling is also an essential element of hospice care. Hospice not only works to meet the physical needs of patients but also the mental, spiritual, and emotional needs. Counseling services are available to help patients and their families in this challenging time of transition.

End-of-Life Planning

One more aim of hospice care is end-of-life planning. Hospice patients who are nearing end-of-life still have some very important decisions to make, and hospice care professionals are able to assist with the process throughout their time caring for a patient. Professionals will help patients get all the necessary documents together and create an appropriate end-of-life plan.

Now that you are equipped with these five defined goals of hospice, you can better understand this form of care and make an educated decision. Soulistic Hospice offers the best possible care with our hospice emotional support in Arizona for you and your loved ones.
