CHARLOTTE, NC- November is National Hospice Month and Novant wants you to know their main goal is making sure patients focus on living.
It’s been 40 years since the first hospice care opened and most people still don’t understand its purpose.
Kim Darden, Director of Novant Health Hospice Services says they want to help people live life to the fullest in the time they have left.
So what is hospice? It’s a patient centered family focused model of care.
Through pain management, symptom control, and emotional and spiritual support, hospice allows patients to make meaningful memories with love ones and friends.
