What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care helps people with serious illness feel better; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It improves quality of life at any stage of illness. Patients can continue curative treatments, and may move in and out of care as the need arises.

  • Managing pain and complex symptoms
  • Help with fatigue and sleep problems
  • Managing nausea, loss of appetite and other symptoms
  • Medical support for shortness of breath
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Spiritual care and medical social services

Care can begin as soon as someone is diagnosed with an illness. It does not signal that a person is giving up hope for recovery or a cure.

When Does Someone Need Care?

Palliative care can be a significant and valuable form of healthcare that helps alleviate the pain and suffering of those who are going through a severe illness or terminal diagnosis. It focuses on providing comfort and support for all aspects of the illness, including emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical well-being. Although any patient can benefit from palliative care regardless of age, diagnosis, or prognosis, it is normally recommended when the person has a life-limiting illness that is not expected to go away anytime soon.

It allows patients to gain control over their medical condition through symptom management and increasing communication between patients, family, and medical personnel. Palliative care can help people make important decisions about how they want to live their remaining days comfortably and with peace of mind.
