We believe in the pro-life movement and agree with the "pro-life healthcare" philosophy of the Hospice Patients Alliance and the Pro-life Healthcare Alliance. We believe our calling is to protect human life by working together.
Pro-Life Hospice is a program of care and support for people who are terminally ill. We believe our calling is to protect human life by working together. We believe this calling is given by our Heavenly Father. Our hospice team is composed of physicians and nurses, social workers and chaplains, therapists and volunteers who join in the effort to provide holistic care that helps a person with a terminal illness live a comfortable and dignified life. This professional group attends to the biological, psychological, sociological and spiritual needs of the person at the end of life and his or her family members. This end-of-life care includes adequate pain management, relief from uncomfortable symptoms, assistance coping with existential issues and addressing social concerns. A physician must certify that the patient is terminally ill with a six-month or less life expectancy if the disease takes its normal course. The patient and or family must be aware of the prognosis and elect palliative comfort care rather than active curative interventions.
