Differences Between Palliative and Hospice Care
Generally speaking, many individuals often mix up palliative and hospice care; however, the two are very different. Hospice services are for those who are in the final stages of their lives. On the other hand, palliative services focus on improving a senior's physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs, regardless of their life expectancy.
Although palliative and hospice care are very different, the core of these two types of care are very similar. Both are focused on bringing as much comfort as possible.
