Transitioning From Traditional Care
Traditional health care is designed to treat, cure or manage illnesses and diseases. Most people think of it as “health care,” and it’s what every person’s primary care doctor mainly focuses on. The primary focus in traditional health care is the qualitative number of patient days.
On the other hand, hospice care is focused on the quality of months, weeks, or days left for patients who’ve been told they have 6 months or less to live. When someone has chosen hospice care, they’ve decided they no longer desire medical interventions and would prefer to spend the rest of their time with family and living in comfort.
