Palliative Care VS Hospice Care – what are the differences?

Both terms are often used interchangeably but represent distinct approaches with different focuses and goals. Palliative care is care for people who have received a terminal diagnosis.

You can start to receive palliative care as soon as you get the diagnosis and for as long as you need it (this may be years). It’s a holistic approach aimed at improving the quality of life for individuals regardless of their life expectancy. You may receive palliative care while you are still receiving other treatments for your condition.

Hospice care, also known as end of life care, is a form of palliative care you receive when you’re close to the end of life, typically six months or less. The focus shifts from curative treatments to symptom management into the final stages of a terminal illness. Generally, life-prolonging treatments aren’t used in hospice care. Instead, they mainly focus on preparing for end-of-life from a comfort care approach.
