the hospice movement
Many people think that a hospice is a temporary care facility for those nearing end-of-life. Though many hospice societies do operate hospice beds or hospice homes, all kinds of end-of-life care and support fall under the umbrella of the term 'hospice'.
In fact, the majority of hospice societies do not operate hospice homes or hospice beds at all, spending their time instead offering
end-of-life support through volunteer programs, advocacy and education initiatives.
