What is the difference between Hospice and Palliative care?
Hospice and palliative care both focus on comfort, though there are some differences.
Hospice care is typically provided to a patient who is no longer pursuing a cure for a terminal illness or condition.
Palliative care is usually provided to patients and their caregivers while hope for improvement or remission remains. A patient receiving palliative care may or may not continue treatment aimed at a cure.
When you support the mission of Sojourn Center, you help give terminally ill people and their families the opportunity to experience end-of-life care in a peaceful, meaningful way without discomfort. Through your support, you can honor the memory of your loved ones while helping others.
The moral test of a society is how that society treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadow of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped. – B
