The Synergy of Hospice and Palliative Care
CC Young Hospice care focuses on the quality of life for patients who are experiencing an advanced, terminal illness. Hospice provides compassionate, loving care from a team of professionals working together to manage symptoms for patients so they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. Hospice is not intended to hasten or postpone death, but manages symptoms of the disease so the end of life is spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by love and family. The patient and family are the center of care. They make the decisions to guide their own path
Palliative care is offered in hospice care, but it also can be given separately from hospice. Palliative care is sometimes called supportive care, symptom management, pain control, or comfort care. Most often it is used for those who are still pursuing aggressive and curative treatment; but have bothersome symptoms that require expert management.
