Hospice care continues to be viewed in many countries as an inpatient setting for the care of those at life’s end. Increasingly, hospice care is now viewed as palliative care provided to people in the place they call home. Home can be the house one has lived in for a long time, or it can be an assisted living setting where one has moved, or the nursing facility one has to live in to meet basic needs. It could also be the street, the city park, the village, the homeless shelter, or even the prison.
