Palliative Care: What is it?
Palliative care is an approach which aims to improve the quality of life of patients and their families struggling with a serious illness. Palliative care aims to provide relief from the stress and symptoms of a serious illness, as well as focusing on improving the quality of life for both the patient and the family. The care is provided by a qualified team of doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains and therapists who work together with the patients' doctors to provide an extra layer of support.
Palliative Care: Who is it for?
Palliative care can be utilized for both children and adults who are faced with a chronic or life-threatening illness.
Palliative Care: What is the difference between palliative care and hospice?
Both palliative care and hospice provide comfort and compassionate care. Hospice care is reserved for terminally ill patients when treatment is no longer an option, usually during the last six months of life or less. Palliative care can be performed for non-terminal patients and patients can receive palliative services while still continuing to receive active treatment for their condition. The goal of palliative care is to help patients live longer, happier lives.
