Hospice care is a special way to care for terminally ill patients – and support their families. The primary goal of hospice care is to relieve pain and other symptoms during the last six months, when treatment focuses on comfort rather than treating the underlying disease.

Hospice care is provided by a team of specially trained providers, including doctors, nurses, home health workers, social workers, counselors, clergy, and volunteers. The family is often very involved in treatment.

Examples of nursing teams include:

Most hospice care is provided at home or in a nursing home. In certain parts of the country, hospitals also have separate hospice services and units.
