Hospice is end of life care for persons with a life limiting diagnosis. Hospice is a philosophy of care that is palliative not curative and focuses on symptom management.
The goal of hospice is to ensure a peaceful death by managing pain and other symptoms.
The MableHouse team consists of the patient as the CEO. Next, we have our medical director, your personal physician, registered nurse, social worker, chaplain, hospice aide, and a volunteer (if you request one). All are here to serve the needs of our families.
Palliative Care is specialized care for patients with a life limiting illness. It focuses on providing relief for symptoms, physical pain and stress. Palliative Care can be received by patients at any stage of illness whether terminal or otherwise.
The main difference between hospice care and palliative care is the time constraints on when care can be received. Further, Palliative care is usually administered when a patient has received a life limiting but not necessarily life ending diagnosis.
