Hospice center is a place that provides end-of-life care to patients. At hospice, a team of health care professionals and volunteers provide care that focuses on palliation of seriously ill patients. They provide psychological, spiritual, and medical support to patients. The aim of hospice is to help patients, who have limited life span, have comfort, peace, and dignity during their final days. Usually, patients to whom hospice services are provided are predicted to survive six months or even less than that. The caregivers try to cure pain and other symptoms so that patients can remain comfortable and alert as long as possible. Besides, hospice services also provide help and support to patient’s family. Palliative care is specialized medical care for patients with serious illness. Palliative care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of serious illnesses. The goal of palliative care is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
