Palliative care can benefit individuals with cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or any serious condition. Unlike hospice care, palliative care can be provided in addition to curative treatments. Palliative care is an extra layer of medical and social support and is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious disease. It is provided wherever the individual resides—private homes, skilled care facilities, assisted living communities, group homes and hospitals.
