Hospice

Hospice programs provide a variety of medical, social, spiritual and caregiving support services for patients near the end of life and for those who care for them. Most patients are able to remain at home with this support, and most services are currently covered by Medicare. Some have in-patient care though care is usually provided in the home.

Unlike traditional medical care which focuses on cure and treatment of conditions, palliative care is a philosophy of care for people with a serious condition which focuses on comfort, pain management and quality of life.  It does not require being near the end of life (as does hospice), and can be provided at the same time as curative and life-prolonging treatment.

There are several websites which help explain palliative care and hospice, such as:
