The Hospice: Advocate for the Dying.
Anspaugh, David J.
Health Education (Washington D.C.), v9 n6 p3-4 Nov-Dec 1978
The hospice philosophy seeks to meet the needs of dying patients and their families. These needs include: effective control of pain; to be loved and to alleviate loneliness; to retain dignity and maintain control of as many aspects of life as possible; and to help the family be supportive and adapt to their inevitable loss.
