Seasons Hospice Tulsa and Springfield MO
Hospice care is about living. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death, but rather it affirms life, emphasizes dignity, and enhances the quality of the remainder of a person’s life. Seasons Hospice, we focus on adding life to days at a time when days can no longer be added to life. We provide hospice care for both the Tulsa, OK metro are and the Springfield, MO area.
Hospice treats the person, not the disease . . . focuses on family and friends, not just the individual . . . and emphasizes the quality of life, not the duration.
Hospice is a program of palliative and supportive services that provide physical, psychological, social and spiritual care for terminally ill persons and their families. It is a comprehensive, medically directed, team-oriented program that accentuates pain control and symptom management for patients who no longer respond to routine aggressive medical care. The focus of hospice care is palliative rather than curative in nature.
Hospice is the belief that each of us has a right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. This is achieved through a team approach by providing the patient with medical care and pain management and the patient and family with emotional and spiritual support as the needed. Hospice focuses on caring, not curing. This is called palliative care.
