When a physician refers to “comfort care” they are essentially indicating that a cure to your loved one’s disease or illness is no longer the objective and in some cases, no longer possible. Comfort care is a multi-faceted approach that includes physical comfort, mental and emotional support, addressing spiritual issues, and providing practical assistance. Superior Hospice provides comfort care through our interdisciplinary team of medical professionals, social workers, massage therapists, music therapists, aides and chaplains.
