Palliative care is an approach to health care that is specially designed to help those living with serious illness. It focuses on helping patients to determine their goals and what type of health care they want. Palliative care also provides support for the patient’s loved ones. Hospice also utilizes a palliative approach to care, but hospice care is specifically designed for patients with end-stage illness and their families.
