Massage, relaxation and music therapy are offered as alternatives to improve comfort
CHCS offers several alternatives to traditional comfort care. We know that each patient is unique and that what might work for some, may not work for others. We have incorporated several therapies to improve patients day-to-day hospice experiences.
Reaching the decision to choose hospice care is a difficult one for patients and their families. In order to make sure patients are comfortable, CHCS makes every effort to identify needs and to meet or exceed them.
The alternative therapies that CHCS offers include massage and music and relaxation therapies.
