It focuses on critically ill patient’s pain and symptoms, and attending to their spiritual and emotional needs, with an approach to improve the life of patients and their families associated with life-threatening illness. Hospice care can be offered by autonomous hospices or through programs based in nursing homes, health care organization, outpatient clinics and hospitals. It can also be offered in the nursing home, patient’s home, a hospital, or private hospice facility. Home hospice care is usually less expensive than that provided in hospitals, nursing homes, or other institutional settings as the cost of additional staff and highly equipped facilities is circumvented when at home.
