Many people think that hospice care can only be provided inside a health care facility. This is a common misperception. Hospice care is a residence-based program. The care is provided wherever the patient lives; a private residence, an assisted living facility or even in a nursing home. The focus of hospice care is to help dying patients to live as fully as possible. Hospice programs also provide support and guidance to family members.
