Seasons Hospice Care Broken Arrow is about living. Here at Seasons Hospice Broken Arrow, we focus on adding life to days at a time when days can no longer be added to life. We treat the person, not the disease. Our focus is on family and friends, not just the individual and we emphasizes the quality of life, not the duration.
Hospice is a program of palliative 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.
At Seasons Hospice Care Broken Arrow, 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.
Palliative care (pronounced pal-lee-uh-tiv) is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. This type of care focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family who is usually the caregiver.
