Penn Medicine Hospice

Description
Our holistic philosophy takes a pro-active approach to pain and symptom management and recognizes that pain extends beyond the physical. We address the symptoms of each patient's illness as well as the emotional and spiritual concerns of the patient, caregiver and family – assisting patients and loved ones with the challenges that come with death and dying. Our multidisciplinary hospice team provides a wide range of care and support, allowing patients to live out their final months comfortably, in control, and with the dignity and respect they deserve. In addition to hospice care, our Penn Home Palliative Care program provides continued curative care for patients with a life-limiting illness. Patients who are used to living independently may be eligible for our Living Alone program, which does not require a live-in caregiver.
