The goal of palliative care is to help people with serious illnesses feel better. It prevents or treats symptoms and side effects of disease and treatment. Palliative care also treats emotional, social, practical, and spiritual problems that illnesses can bring up. When the person feels better in these areas, they have an improved quality of life.
Palliative care can be given at the same time as treatments meant to cure or treat the disease, this includes any home health services. Palliative care may be given when the illness is diagnosed, throughout treatment, during follow-up, and at the end of life.
Hospice care is a specialized care designed to provide support to you and your loved ones during an advanced illness.
Hospice care focuses on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The goal of hospice care is to enable you to have an alert, pain-free life, and to live each day as fully as possible.
Hospice care affirms life and views death as a natural process.
