What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care provides relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. It’s an extra layer of support that begins with clear conversations about your needs and priorities.

Precision pain management is an example of palliative care. People experience pain differently. The palliative care team fine-tunes medications to help you find your right level of relief, gain strength and improve your quality of life.

Care includes:

  • Managing pain and other symptoms
  • Help with fatigue and sleep problems
  • Managing nausea, loss of appetite or constipation
  • Reducing the side effects of medication
  • Medical support for shortness of breath
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Spiritual care and medical support services for the entire family

Palliative care does not signal you are giving up hope for recovery. It can begin at any stage of an illness, with patients moving in and out of care as needed.

When Does Someone Need Palliative 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.
