If you’re suffering from chronic illness, consider a palliative care plan. Broadly defined, a chronic illness is a condition lasting greater than a 1 year; which requires ongoing medical attention or restricts a person’s daily activities. The goal of palliative care is to provide you with relief from the symptoms and stress caused by an illness; ultimately, improve your quality of life. Hospice, by contrast, provides palliative care services in the last months of your life. Too many people suffer in hospitals or nursing homes by not receiving the care consistent with their wishes.
