Palliative care is a term that is new to many people. It describes a model of health care that is aimed at promoting comfort and wellbeing for those who have serious illness, not necessarily terminal illness. The focus of palliative care is to support patients and their loved ones in exploring and choosing care that is most consistent with personal goals. Hospice utilizes a palliative approach to care and is designed specifically for those with end-stage illness.
