What is the difference between palliative care and hospice care?

Palliative care is a way to improve quality of life for someone who is being treated for a serious illness. Palliative care providers are experts in easing symptoms that cause distress, such as pain, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, constipation, sleeping, and breathing problems.


The goal of hospice is to give comfort and support to a dying person and their caregivers. Hospice focuses on quality of life and helps someone live his or her last days with a sense of control.
