Hospice care focuses on physical and emotional comfort in the final phase of a terminal illness. Palliative care is specialized medical care that focuses on relief from serious and terminal illness.

QUESTION

How much does home health care cost?

ANSWER

Home health care is generally less expensive than the care one would receive in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
