Hospice is end of life care. Once on Hospice you will receive a team of professionals and volunteers provided by the Hospice agency you contract with. This team will give medical, psychological and spiritual support but not treatment. The goal of Hospice care is to help people who are dying to have peace, comfort and dignity. The medical part of Hospice to to treat pain and discomfort, not to treat for a cure. PHCI is able to follow the physicians recommendations and assist the client in staying comfortable.

Palliative Care

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care is specialized medical care for people with a serious illness or decline in health. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness or extensive age. The goal is to improve quality of life for patients and family. The goal is to provide comfort care but patients may also receive curative  treatments for their illness. 

What is the difference between Hospice and Palliative Care?

Both palliative care and hospice care provide comfort. But palliative care can begin at diagnosis, and at the same time as treatment. Hospice care begins after treatment of the disease is stopped and when it is clear that the person is not going to survive the illness.
Hospice care is usually offered only when the person is expected to live 6 months or less.
