Palliative Care vs. Hospice Care

Palliative care is an extra layer of support for patients and families during any stage of serious illness that focuses on relieving suffering, improving the quality of life and can be provided at the same time as life-prolonging treatments. Ridgeview’s Palliative Care program focuses on developing a plan of care for the whole person and family – mind, body and spirit.

Hospice care is specialized end of life care, with a team of experts who come along side patients and families to provide comfort and holistic care to those in the final stage of life.
