A hospice is a facility providing both, permanent palliative and nursing care, 24 hours a day, to dying or terminally or chronically ill people as well as support to their relatives. Thus it has a different focus in comparison with a nursing home.

Most hospices are tagged healthcare=hospice or amenity=hospice instead.

How to tag?

Set a node node at the center of the feature or draw an area area along its outline.

Add the tags amenity=social_facility + social_facility=hospice, and specify the target group with social_facility:for=*, in general terminal_ill, but also child for a children's hospice.
