Hospice is a special way of providing non-medical care for those who are terminally ill, by providing care and support for them and their families.
Palliative care is patient and family-centered care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and treating suffering. It addresses the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of the patient and family in order to enhance the quality of life for both.
The primary goal of hospice care is to help the individual and his/her family to maintain the highest quality of life in the last stages of the illness; without the fear of dying in pain, alone, or without personal dignity.
