Hospice care provides humane and comforing support for terminally ill patients and their families, including pain control, palliative medical care and social, emotional and spiritual services. Hospice fulfills basic human needs of feeling comfortable in familiar surroundings and of attaining physical and emotional peace during the last stage of life. Currently there are over 114,000 professionals and hundreds of thousands of volunteers (the equivalent of 56,000 full time employees) who provide comforting and supportive hospice services to over 1.5 million patients and their families in an estimated 3,800 hospice programs throughout the United States. Elite Hospice has joined the Hospice Association of America and an estimated 3,800 hospice providers in declaring November 2020 as National Hospice Month. (Photo by Tom Byrd)
