According to Google, hospice is a program designed to provide palliative care, which is a drug or medical treatment that reduces pain without curing the cause of the pain, and emotional support to the terminally ill in a home or homelike setting so that quality of life is maintained and family members may be active partiipants in care.

Originally, palliative care was developed for people with terminal illness. But within the past decade, it has become a medical specialty that focuses on a much broader range of serious or life-threatening diseases.
