What Is Palliative Care?
The main purpose of palliative in-home care is to minimize stress and discomfort and find ways to relieve the symptoms of an illness or chronic condition, regardless of the stage of the illness or life expectancy. In essence, this type of service promotes overall well-being and seeks to elevate quality of life for seniors and family caregivers alike.
Palliative services are perfect for aging adults who require:
- Ongoing assistance with chronic or age-related concerns
- Physical, emotional, social and spiritual care
- Essential personal home care services
While it is true that most people interchangeably use the terms palliative and hospice care, in the caregiving industry, they are traditionally perceived as completely different types of care. While palliative and hospice care undeniably have many similarities, one major characteristic that differentiates the two is that hospice care is almost singularly reserved for those with terminal illness whereas palliative care is provided regardless of life expectancy.
