Hospice focuses on caring for the “whole person” – body, mind and spirit. At Care Dimensions, we integrate mind-body complementary therapies as an essential feature of total hospice care. Working in harmony with traditional medical and psycho-social services, these non-invasive, holistic practices help ease tension, reduce anxiety and improve overall comfort for patients. Our patients tell us they experience a sense of peace and well-being after receiving complementary therapy.
Complementary therapies are provided by staff and volunteers, and even animals, in the case of our multiple therapy dogs.
