What is Hospice and Palliative Care -The Concept of Hospice

Hospice is a concept of care for those who have illnesses that are having a life-limiting effect. Hospice can offer comfort, care and assistance even when medicine can’t. The care of hospice maintains a better quality of life for the patient. Palliative care involves aggressive treatment of physical and emotional pain and symptoms. The focus is the comfort and quality of life. Hospice care is the affirmation of life and neither hastens nor postpones the end of life. Hospice provides a caring community for terminally ill patients and their families.
