Although treatment for the cancer may stop once hospice care begins, treatments to improve quality of life and ease symptoms continue. This care includes: Control of pain, nausea and other symptoms. Treatment for non-cancer health conditions. Emotional and psychological support. Help with practical concerns (such as financial issues or child care). Help with decisions about whether or not to attempt resuscitation (emergency measures if your heart stops beating). Help with achieving remaining goals in life. Relief for caregivers. Spiritual and grief counseling.
