Hospice is about living. Hospice 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 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.
If you are in Tulsa, Northeastern Oklahoma or Springfield, Missouri, we would like the opportunity to serve you or your family for any hospice needs.
