Palliative Care Services
Knowing When to Call
There are many misconceptions surrounding hospice care, which is also known as palliative care or comfort care services. At Seasons, we seek to redefine hospice care and end the stigma associated with it. We have a deep desire to educate our patients, their families, and our community about the benefits of seeking end of life care in a timely manner.
Our hope is that unnecessary suffering will be minimized when people are informed and therefore more able to see beyond the stigma. Once a patient meets the criteria for starting hospice care, it’s time to call a provider.
Common Benefits of Hospice Care
Peace of mind for patients and their loved ones
Seasons Hospice of Springfield, MO provides comprehensive patient care services to each person in the palliative care program, ensuring that they are comfortable and pain-free. Families, loved ones, and caregivers are given respite from the situational stress that arises from a loved one being in poor health and needing extra support.
Knowing that there will be a physician and palliative care team assigned to the patient (that doesn’t change from day to day) is reassuring for everyone involved.
Hospice care also gives patients and their loved ones a safe and supportive space to grieve and celebrate life together. Whether the individual is more comfortable with home care or inpatient hospice care, we will arrange a comforting environment for them so they can focus on relaxing.
Customized care and counseling
At Seasons, our hospice services aren’t just focused on medical care. Our mission is centered around holistic health, focusing on emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. We seek to cultivate an environment that is peaceful, not clinical. Our services can be customized to fit the individual needs of each patient that we serve and we always work toward improving the quality of life for each person in the hospice program.
Uplifting love and support

At Seasons, we do everything we can to ensure this time is filled with joy and the opportunity to create lasting memories. Thanks to the generosity of community donors, Seasons can provide our hospice patients with moments they can treasure with their families.
