For those living with a life-limiting illness, Matthews Memorial also contracts with certain hospice care providers. Hospice care focuses on enhancing a patient’s quality of life rather than offering curative treatment. Our staff will assist the community in recognizing that every phase of life has its own beauty and that every moment of life is something to be celebrated and cherished.
Hospice care concentrates on providing pain relief and symptom management, so that patients live as comfortably and with as much dignity as possible. The ultimate goal is to make this a time of transition and comfort.
