What Hospice Palliative Care Addresses

Hospice Palliative Care is specialized client-centered end-of-life care. It aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying.

Hospice Palliative Care supports people living with life-threatening illnesses. It provides care for patients and their loved ones to meet each individual’s

  • Medical needs
  • Psychological needs
  • Social needs
  • Spiritual needs
  • Practical needs

 

Where is Care Provided?

Care can be provided at home, in hospitals, in nursing homes or in free-standing pieces.

Hospice palliative care considers that dying is an important part of living and that it is essential to manage pain and other symptoms effectively so that those facing death, and their loved ones, can devote their energies not to fighting physical discomfort, but to embrace the time they have left together.
