Marcus Daly Hospice offers dignity, comfort and caring for patients and their families facing an incurable, life-threatening illness or condition, so that they may live as fully and independently as they choose.
"You matter because of who you are. You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die."
--Dame Cicely Saunders
Hospice care treats the person rather than the disease; it focuses on quality rather than quantity of life, striving to alleviate suffering, whether it is physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual. Hospice is family-centered care: it involves the patient and family in care planning and making decisions, promoting dignity and self-determination.
The hospice philosophy affirms life, and does not hasten or postpone death. It promotes understanding and accepting that the journey of life eventually leads to death, and seeks to preserve and promote the inherent potential for growth within individuals and families during this last phase of life.
