Hospice care is specialized to help individuals and their loved ones through the advanced stages of terminal and chronic illnesses. The most common illnesses requiring hospice care are cancer, AIDS, heart disease, neurological disease, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer disease.

Doctors, nurses, social workers, and religious figures team up to best support the hospice patient.
