Palliative care is an approach to health care that is designed to assist patients with serious illness and to support their loved ones. Palliative care focuses on enhancing one’s quality of life. Extending life may be a beneficial result of the care, but it is not the main goal. Hospice also utilizes a palliative approach to care, but hospice care is specifically designed for terminally ill individuals and their families.
