At Banner Health, our hospice team recognizes there are many ways to care for a patient’s well-being. That’s why in addition to traditional therapies and specialized comfort, we offer our patients a variety of alternative therapies to enhance quality of life. Delivered by our credentialed staff, these life enhancing therapies promote relaxation, relieve stress and manage pain by nurturing the mind, body and spirit.
Talk with your doctor and your care team to integrate one of these therapy options into your hospice plan.
