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. One goal is to improve quality of life for patients and family. Another goal is to provide comfort care, though patients may also receive curative treatments for their illness.
Both palliative care and hospice care provide comfort. 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 will not survive the illness.
Hospice care is usually offered only when the person is expected to live 6 months or less.
