Hospice vs Palliative Care
Knowing the difference between hospice and palliative care can be confusing. For Paradigm Health patients can rest assured that their palliative care can transition to hospice care seamlessly should it be needed in their continuum of care. Palliative care is often a step toward hospice care, but it is not the same as hospice care. Patients on palliative care are within one to five years of needing hospice care while hospice patients are typically seeking end-of-life care within the last six months of life.
