Palliative care is a model of health care that is designed for people who are suffering from serious illness. Its focus is on the management of distressing symptoms. It also aims to provide emotional and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones. A palliative approach is utilized by hospice programs as well, but hospice provides palliative care that is specially designed for patients facing terminal illness.
