Hospices and Palliative Care
Palliative/hospice care focuses on easing the symptoms, stress and pain of chronically ill, terminally ill, or seriously ill patients, and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family. There are a total of 65 palliative care and hospice providers across Kenya.
