End of Life: Hospice Palliative Care

[Exploring Life] The hospice palliative care movement is designed to provide end-of-life or terminal care for people who are in the final stage of life. This form of care is not designed to bring about a cure, nor is the focus to concentrate on prolonging a life through medical intervention. The purpose of hospice palliative care is to relieve the physical, mental and emotional symptoms of pain and discomfort associated with dying in order to improve the quality of time remaining for both the dying as well as their loved ones. Hospice palliative care is a method of care designed to promote quality of life as long as possible, and provide a foundation for a good death.
