Web Content: Palliative Care vs. Hospice Care

How are palliative care and hospice alike, and how are they different?

Hospice

What is hospice care?

  • Provides treatment to manage pain and symptoms associated with a terminal illness
     
  • Gives support to patient and family
     
  • Provides comfort and care, not "cure" the illness or disease
     
  • Objectives are pain and symptom control
     
  • Enables person who is terminally ill to enjoy life to the fullest
