November is National Hospice & Palliative Care MonthMonday, November 16, 2020
National Hospice and Palliative Care Month November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.
PACE and other programs across the country are reaching out to raise awareness about hospice and palliative care. This year's theme is "It’s About How You Live."
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. These programs combine 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. Throughout the month of November, Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) will join organizations across the nation in hosting activities that help their community understand how important hospice and palliative care can be.
