Hospice is centered around the patient’s plan of care which is developed by an interdisciplinary team of professionals and input is provided directly by the patient and/or family and caregivers.
Palliative care provides pain and symptom relief in the home and can begin at any stage of a serious illness for any age of patient. Palliative care can be used with or without curative and life-prolonging treatments.
