Whats the difference between Hospice Care & Palliative Care?

Abby Services In-Home Caregivers for Seniors works together with many healthcare providers to ensure our patients and their families receive the care and support they want where and when they need it. The professional and private caregivers we work with compliment services patients are currently receiving from Medicare Providers, PT/OT, services, and Hospice Providers. Unfortunately, many families are unsure who to turn to when they need the help and support of Home Health Service like ours.

Scott Strachan, a nurse, and one of the owners of Abby Services has had real-world clinical Hospice and Palliative care experience. Scott and Abby Services understand that sometimes it can be hard to know who to turn to for the help and information seniors need. This is especially true when Hospice & Palliative care are involved simply because of the difficult nature behind the services they provide. That’s why we loved this infographic linked below from Avow Hospice. It helps to explain the differences between Hospice and Palliative Care and relieves some anxiety and confusion about the two similar but very different services.
