Hospice is about living. Palliative home care neither hastens nor postpones death, but rather it affirms life, emphasizes dignity, and enhances the quality of the remainder of a person’s life. At Tulsa-based Seasons Hospice, we focus on adding life to days at a time when days can no longer be added to life.
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 home care 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.
No. Although all hospices specialize in the care of life-limiting illnesses, the quality of care and extent of services can differ widely among hospice care providers. Many hospices are part of large, for-profit health care systems. Seasons Hospice is an independent, community health care provider.
Many patients who are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness want to live the remainder of their lives in the comfort, security and familiarity of home, surrounded by those who love them. Our goal is to provide peace and comfort to the patient and their loved ones through pain control, symptom management, psychological and spiritual aspects of care. Seasons Hospice helps to ensure quality of life for people faced with these life limiting illnesses by providing palliative home care.
With Seasons Hospice Care, patients and loved ones regain a sense of control over their lives. Caregivers take comfort and pride in the fact they are doing everything possible for their loved one. We allow the patient to concentrate on living fully instead of focusing all their waking moments being consumed by pain.
