Who Benefits from Palliative
and Hospice Care?
Both palliative care and hospice care in Kansas City provide comfort for individuals with a serious and/or terminal illness. The goal is to enable patients to be comfortable and create a pain free environment, so they live each day as fully as possible.
Palliative Care vs. Hospice Care
Palliative care can begin at diagnosis, and at the same time as treatment. Hospice care begins after treatment of the disease has stopped and when it is clear that the person is not going to survive the illness.

How Much Does It Cost?
Cost can vary depending on the services provided. More importantly, the physical condition of the client and how much provider involvement is required. Most facilities will perform an assessment prior to quoting a price. Palliative and hospice will be the most cost effective, since the client is only being made comfortable, with a limited life expectancy.
