About Hospice

When the focus of medical care changes from cure to comfort, Optimal Hospice Care can provide physical, emotional, practical and spiritual support for the entire family.

Optimal works together with patients and their families to enhance their quality of life.  By utilizing the most modern pain and symptom management techniques combined with a compassionate support system, hospice helps to reduce the overwhelming stress and anxiety that can come with caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness.  Hospice care is provided wherever the patient lives, whether in a private residence, nursing home, or residential care facility.
