Hospice Care focuses on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure.
At Ambercare, we stress comfort and quality of life at every stage of an individual’s time in our care. When life is limited to days, weeks or months it takes a special person to know how to best help the patient, family and friends make these last moments as comfortable and meaningful as possible.
Ambercare Hospice caregivers are highly skilled and expertly trained in dealing with the challenges that end-of-life presents. They wholeheartedly provide our patients and their loved ones with empathy, support and compassion every step of the way. Ambercare also provides medical, psychological, spiritual, and emotional support for the terminally ill. Ambercare is focused on alleviating the pain experienced during this difficult time and helping individuals cope with dying, death, and grief.
