What is Hospice?

Hospice offers medical care toward a different goal: maintaining or improving quality of life for someone whose illness, disease or condition is unlikely to be cured.  Each patient’s individualized care plan is updated as needed to address the physical, emotional and spiritual pain that often accompanies terminal illness. Hospice care also offers practical support for the caregiver(s) during the illness and grief support after death.  Hospice is something more that is available to the patient and the entire family when curative measures have been exhausted and life prognosis is six months or less.

Hospice staff visits regularly and are always accessible to answer medical questions, provide support, education and the medical supplies needed to effectively care for a family member at home. In the early weeks/months of hospice care, it is usually not necessary for someone to be with a patient all of the time; however, later, as the disease process progresses, it becomes absolutely necessary for a primary caregiver to be with their loved one at all times. It is never easy and sometimes quite hard to care for a loved one at home. At the end of a long, progressive illness, nights especially can be very long. For that reason, hospice provides support to those caring for a loved one at home by having trained, professional staff members on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and help is only a phone call away. Hospice seeks to provide quality of life to the remaining days and is an appropriate choice when quality of days is the focus and the hope of the patient.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is care that helps people live their life as fully and as comfortably as possible when living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.

Palliative care identifies and treats symptoms which may be physical, emotional, spiritual or social. Because palliative care is based on individual needs, the services offered will differ but may include:

  • Relief of pain and other symptoms e.g. vomiting, shortness of breath
  • Resources such as equipment needed to aid care at home
  • Assistance for families to come together to talk about sensitive issues
  • Links to other services such as home help and financial support
  • Support for people to meet cultural obligations
  • Support for emotional, social and spiritual concerns
  • Counseling and grief support
  • Referrals to respite care services

Palliative care is a family-centered model of care, meaning that family and caregivers can receive practical and emotional support.
