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 who choose to forego curative treatment. 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.

Care at the End of Life

The Wesley Hospice interdisciplinary team of care professionals offers physical, spiritual, emotional and social support and will assist with personal care, education and guidance during the end-of-life journey. All patients and their loved ones are given the same respect, compassion and confidentiality, regardless of diagnosis, gender, ethnicity, age, faith or economic status.
