Many people wonder about the meaning of the term “palliative care”. Palliative care is a model of care that is designed to promote comfort for those with serious illness, not necessarily terminal illness. One of the main areas of focus is to help patients explore the many treatment options and approaches available for the management of their particular illness. Hospice utilizes a palliative approach to care as well, and is designed specifically for those with end-stage illness.
