Palliative Care

Q. What is palliative medicine?

A. Palliative medicine is a medical subspecialty provided by doctors who offer palliative care for people who are seriously ill. Palliative care relieves suffering and improves quality of life for people of any age and at any stage in a serious illness, whether that illness is curable, chronic, or life-threatening.

Q. What’s the difference between palliative care and hospice care?

A. Palliative Care is whole-person care that relieves symptoms of a disease or disorder, whether or not it can be cured. Hospice is a specific type of palliative care for people who likely have 6 months or less to live. In other words, hospice care is always palliative, but not all palliative care is hospice care.


Q. What does a palliative doctor do that’s different from what my other doctors do?

A. Your other doctors focus on your general health or treating your disease or condition. Palliative doctors concentrate on preventing and alleviating suffering, improving your quality of life, and helping you and your loved ones cope with the stress and burden of your illness.

Q. Shouldn’t all my doctors be concerned with alleviating my suffering and improving my quality of life?

A. Yes, of course. But palliative doctors have special training and expertise in pain management and symptom control, and specialize in helping patients and their families cope with the many burdens of a serious illness, from the side effects of a medical treatment to caregiver stress to fears about the future. Palliative doctors can assist you with difficult medical decisions, helping you weigh the pros and cons of various treatments.

Q. If I receive palliative or hospice care, will I still be able to see my personal doctor?

A. Absolutely. Your palliative fcoordinates care with your other doctors and helps you navigate the often-complex healthcare system.

Hospice Care

Q. If I receive palliative or hospice care, will I still be able to see my personal doctor?

A. Absolutely. Your palliative doctor coordinates care with your other doctors and helps you navigate the often-complex healthcare system.

Q. Is it true that once you enter a hospice program, you must stay in hospice care until you die?

A. No. Insurers and Medicaid agencies will provide coverage for hospice care if your doctors determine you likely have 6 months (in some cases a year) or less to live if your illness follows its normal course. However, it is your own choice to enter or leave hospice care. If your illness improves or you wish to seek curative treatment, you may leave hospice care, returning if and when you choose to.

Q. Is hospice just for the last few days or weeks of life?

A. You are eligible for hospice care if you likely have 6 months or less to live (some insurers or state Medicaid agencies cover hospice for a full year). Unfortunately, most people don’t receive hospice care until the final weeks or even days of life, possibly missing out on months of helpful care and quality time.

Home Health Care

Q. What is home health care?
Home health care is an excellent, cost-effective alternative to hospital or other institutional care. Service is based on the individual’s needs as defined by his or her doctor’s plan of care. This may include visits from skilled nurses, therapists, social workers and/or home health aides.

Q. What are the advantages of home health care?
In many cases, home health care allows a person to be discharged earlier from a hospital, reduces hospital admissions, and helps with a faster recovery. Most importantly, people are happier at home and receive more care and attention from family, friends and home health care professionals.

Q. Who uses home health care?

  • People of all ages.
  • People who can leave the hospital or nursing home but need additional care;
  • People who have short-term health needs;
  • People who need assistance, due to age or disability, to remain at home; and
  • People who need education about the disease process and training on how to best care for themselves.
