Palliative care

Like hospice, palliative care offers relief from the pain and symptoms of serious illness. Palliative care is for patients at any stage of an illness, and it may or may not be life-limiting. This care aims to address the patient's physical, emotional, spiritual, and social needs, as well as to help the family through this time. Also sometimes called comfort care, palliative care addressing the whole patient and their wellbeing.
