More Info

Palliative medicine is available at any time during an illness, and can be utilized as needed, or throughout a patients’ treatment.
Hospice care is provided to patients with a terminal illness with a life expectancy of six months or less, and who are no longer receiving disease-directed treatment of their medical condition.
