Hospice Touch and Life Choices Palliative Care are programs offered by Tomah Memorial Hospital to treat patients with serious and terminal illness or injury. Care is usually done in the patient’s home by a trained team of medical professionals.
Both programs deal with comfort, help for the caregivers and each patient’s right to make informed choices about their care and goals.

Life Choices Palliative Care: Program that assists patients with a serious illness whether the goal is cure or care. Inpatient and outpatient (home) services are provided by a team of medical professionals.
The Hospice Team: Medical services, emotional support and spiritual resources are provided by a team that may consist of a physician, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, nursing assistant, social worker, chaplain and volunteers.
