Death is an inevitable part of life but many people are hesitant to discuss end of life issues. A recent report by the Pew Research Center found that 27% of adults have not given much thought to end of life medical treatment preferences. Hospice is a specialized type of medical care which focuses on improving and maintaining the quality of life for those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. A holistic approach of treatment is used to achieve these goals. Physical, emotional, spiritual and social aspects of the patient are addressed during the course of care. A medical doctor makes a determination that a patient likely has six months or less to live as criteria for hospice services.
