Hospice and palliative care programs across the country are reaching out to raise awareness about hospice and palliative care.
Hospice is not a place but is high-quality care that enables patients and families to focus on living as fully as possible despite a life-limiting illness. Palliative care brings this holistic model of care to people earlier in the course of a serious illness.
Hospice and palliative care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing a serious illness or the end of life.
Hospice and palliative care programs provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible.

National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) issued a proclamation in recognition of the important outreach and awareness ongoing throughout November 2017.
