When you or someone you love is living with a terminal illness, quality of life matters more than ever. At Louisiana Hospice and Palliative Care of Opelousas, our dedicated hospice professionals help our patients across South Central Louisiana live as fully and comfortably as possible in the final stages of life.
Hospice care is centered on the effective management of pain and other symptoms of end-stage illness. We deliver physical, emotional, social and spiritual support to our patients and their family members.
Hospice is available to individuals with end-stage illness for which there is no cure. But hospice care is not limited to the last few days of a patient’s life. In fact, hospice is designed to provide support throughout the final stages of illness. Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance.
