Palliative care is any type of care that focuses on making a sick person feel comfortable, rather than curing the illness. Sometimes known as end of life care, hospice care is a type of palliative care for individuals who are in the last stages of a serious illness and have decided not to pursue curative treatments. In general, the purpose of hospice care centers on symptom relief, comfort, and emotional-spiritual support.
Our approach to hospice and palliative care at home or at a facility is simple: help families spend quality time together by matching them with the perfect caregiver for their situation. A caregiver can help with day-to-day activities like bathing or dressing, or provide support and companionship for the sick individual.
