What Is Hospice Care?
Palliative Care?

Hospice Care is comfort care at the end of life
Palliative Care is comfort care at any stage of a serious illness

Both hospice and palliative care provide relief from pain and other uncomfortable
symptoms. Hospice and palliative care are appropriate for people with a terminal
or serious illness, regardless of age, gender, religious faith or cultural background.
