What is the difference between palliative care and hospice care?
Both hospice care and palliative care focuses on improving the quality of life for patients with serious conditions; however, there are key differences that define the two.
Palliative care is primarily focused on keeping a patient comfortable when symptoms, such as pain, interfere with the patient’s quality of life. Palliative care is often an essential component of hospice care.
Hospice care focuses on the medical, spiritual, physical, and emotional well-being of a patient. Starting hospice care can positively affect patients with life-limiting illnesses as well as the patient’s family members.
