Palliative Care vs. Hospice Care

Palliative care provides an extra layer of support for patients and families during any stage of serious illness. It 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 team develops 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 provide comfort and holistic care to patients and families in the final stage of life.
