Palliative care is whole-person care that relieves symptoms of a disease or disorder, whether or not it can be cured. Hospice is a specified type of palliative care for people who likely have 6 months or less to live. Hospice care is always palliative, but not all palliative care is hospice care.
Now is the best time to learn more about hospice services. Although end-of-life care is difficult to discuss, it is best for family to know their loved one's wishes before it becomes a concern. By having these discussions in advance, it can greatly reduce stress when the time for hospice is needed. Patients and families can make an educated decision that includes the advice and input of family members and loved ones.
Hospice services can be provided to a terminally ill person wherever they live. This means a patient living in a nursing facility or long -term care facility can receive specialized visits from hospice nurses, home health aides, Chaplains, social workers, and volunteers, in addition to other care and services provided by the nursing facility. The hospice and the nursing home will have a written agreement in place in order for the hospice to serve residents of the facility.
