Post-acute care is a range of services that complement the care delivered by an acute care hospital after an illness or injury. Patients who require post-acute services are those who are no longer in critical situation but still need quality care and services. Such patients are usually discharged to post-acute care setting such as home health and hospice centers, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) and long-term acute-care hospitals (LTACs).
Hospice care is end-of-life care. It is generally opted by patients with life span of not more than six months. The main purpose of hospice care is to focus on quality of life of the patient rather than curative measures. Hospice care can be provided in any setting such as home, nursing home, assisted living facility, and inpatient hospital. Professionals involved in hospice care try to control pain and other discomforts so that the patient remains comfortable as much as possible.
