What's the Difference Between Palliative and Hospice Care?

Many people believe that palliative and hospice care are the same thing, so they do not even consider it for their loved ones unless they are approaching the end of their life. Despite this popular belief, the two types of care have their differences.

Namely, while hospice care was developed for people nearing the end of their life, palliative services can cater to anyone looking for comfort-focused care regardless of life expectancy, as it was designed with the goal of elevating life quality with regards to physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
