Palliative & Hospice Care

Find Palliative & Hospice Care in your Area:

 
Both palliative care and hospice care share a common goal to create and maintain a high quality of life for patients with life-threatening diseases.

Seniors’ Palliative Care

Palliative care for seniors addresses patients suffering from terminal illnesses – but anyone, regardless of life expectancy, can receive palliative care.  Oftentimes palliative care will also provide help and support to the senior’s family members and loved ones.  The majority of palliative care programs for seniors have:
  • A focus on the patient’s quality of life
  • Consideration for the patient’s past and current condition
  • Respect for the patient’s autonomy (ex. preferred place of care, treatment choices)
  • Care that addresses the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of the patient

Hospice Care for Seniors

Hospice care differs slightly from palliative care in that the aim is to provide the patient with the best quality of life by relieving pain and other symptoms during the final days of life.  Hospice care is given at a point in time when the patient’s condition can no longer be treated or cured.  Most hospice care services for seniors:
  • Aim to keep pain and suffering to a minimum
  • Do not try to cure the patient
  • Can be provided in-home, at a hospice center, hospital, skilled nursing home or long term care facility
  • Believe that patients deserve to die with dignity and in comfort, with friends and family close by

Improved Quality of Life

Palliative and hospice care for seniors in North America can be provided through volunteer services, non-profit organizations, hospitals, or private enterprises. The main objective of palliative and hospice care is to create the highest quality of life possible for patients who suffer from severe illnesses.
