What is Hospice?

Hospice care is a type of care that focuses on the chronically ill or terminally ill patient and helping them manage their pain and symptoms. Hospice care can also take on a supportive role of attending to their patient’s emotional and spiritual needs. Typically, hospice care is a concept used to care for the incurable and is usually performed in nursing homes or at the patient’s home. Hospice onset is usually designated by most insurance providers for the terminally ill who have been given less than six months to live.

What to Expect?

Hospice care is different from palliative care because it usually indicates the end of life. Palliative care is considered care for the chronically ill who have a longer life expectancy. Their illness is more life limiting, rather than life threatening. Hospice care involves assistance and end-of-life care to patients, but also assistance to their families as they come to terms with what is happening.
