Palliative care is specialized medical care focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. It is designed to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family and can be provided alongside curative treatments.

No, palliative care is different from hospice care. While both prioritize comfort, palliative care can begin at diagnosis and continue during treatment and beyond, whereas hospice care is reserved for those who are nearing the end of life.

Anyone with a serious illness, regardless of age or stage of illness, can benefit from palliative care. It is particularly helpful for those with illnesses that cause significant discomfort, stress, or life disruption.

Palliative care specifically aims to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life without focusing on curing the underlying disease. It is a complementary approach that can be provided alongside standard medical care for serious illnesses.
