Palliative Care seeks to provide relief from the five domains of pain that all persons experience when faced with a debilitating diagnosis. Palliative Care is not reserved for those who are strictly dying; it is for anyone who is diagnosed with a serious or chronic illness and it begins at the time of admission. Palliative Care allows each resident to receive the appropriate treatment that brings him/her comfort and the best possible care. Palliative care can be combined with curative care or with less aggressive care. Palliative care is not the same as Hospice or End of Life care, which is reserved for those who are clearly dying. 

Is Palliative Care the same as hospice?

All Hospice Care is Palliative Care, but all Palliative Care is not Hospice Care; it is a matter of timing. Hospice Care or End of Life Care, is care to relieve pain and ease suffering in the five domains of pain and is provided to those who are clearly dying. It focuses on the individual needs of each person, is provided when curative and life-prolonging treatments are futile. The goal of Hospice Care is to provide the best quality of care for each resident. Hospice care always provides Palliative Care, by paying special attention to the five domains of pain and is implemented when a person is actively dying. A cure or aggressive treatment is considered futile and not pursued.
