Hospice care is provided to patients who are reaching the end of their lives. The services are offered by a team of health care specialists who reduce pain and meet physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs for people who are terminally ill. Hospice care also offers counselling, respite care, and practical support to families. The goal of hospice care, unlike other medical treatments, is not to cure the underlying condition. The goal is to maintain the maximum possible quality of life for as long as feasible. It's for someone who is terminally ill and has six months or less to live. Hospice care, on the other hand, can be provided as long as the person's doctor and hospice care team certify that the condition is still life-limiting.
Palliative care is a type of medical treatment for those who are suffering from a terminal illness such as cancer or heart failure. Patients receiving palliative care may receive medical treatment for their symptoms as well as treatment to cure their terrible illness. Palliative care is intended to complement a person's existing treatment by focusing on their and their family's quality of life. Palliative care can help patients comprehend their medical treatment options, in addition to increasing their quality of life and alleviating symptoms. This sort of treatment focuses on alleviating the illness's symptoms and stress. The goal is to improve the patient's and family's quality of life. Palliative care is based on the patient's needs rather than their prognosis. It can be given at any age and at any stage of a serious illness, and it can be given in conjunction with curative treatment.
