All hospice care is palliative care, but all palliative care is not necessarily hospice care. Both palliative and hospice care provide comfort. Palliative Care is a specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and family. Palliative Care can begin at the time of diagnosis and continue along with aggressive treatments.
