How are Palliative and Hospice Care Different?

Palliative is medical or comfort care that provides relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Palliative care can be combined with curative treatment, at any age and during any stage of a serious illness, such as cancer or Alzheimer’s disease.

Hospice is end-of-life care for patients who no longer benefit from curative treatment and whose life expectancy is six months or less. The heart of hospice care is the belief that we have the right to die pain-free, with dignity and with the comforting knowledge that our families will receive bereavement support for up to 13 months.
