    What’s the difference between a hospice and care home as I’m volunteering to help out at a care home because I’m applying for medicine in the future but do I need to volunteer at a hospice as well

    I believe a hospice is a place terminally ill people can live in their final days, whereas a care home is a place where people live when they can't live on their own or without 24 hour care. They're not necessarily terminally ill.

    I'm not certain as I don't know much about medicine but my instinct is a care home.
