A Day to Celebrate Hospice and Palliative Care
Saturday, October 13, 2018
World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is a unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world.
This day is dedicated to raising the visibility of palliative care within the global community and to providing opportunities to support hospice and palliative care in the form of a unified day of action.
It’s not about “helping someone die,” but instead about helping someone to live as comfortably as possible with their illness. It’s about seeing them as a living person, not a dying patient. It’s supporting those closest to them and adding life to days, whether or not days can be added to lives.
