Palliative Care

Palliative care is a specialized kind of care given for people who suffer from serious illnesses. It involves making sure that the patients are relieved from their symptoms of pain and stress associated with the illness. The goal of palliative care is to improve quality of life for the patient as well as the family. Care is provided by a special team consisting of doctors, nurses, and other specialists working together to provide the needed support.

Who is it for?
This type of care can be given at any age and any stage of the illness. It can also be given along with curative treatment. People suffering from chronic and serious illnesses, such as cardiac disease like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure (CHF), kidney failure, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, and so on may be provided with palliative care.

How does it help?
Palliative care focuses in relieving symptoms like pain, fatigue, breathing difficulty, nausea, constipation, depression, loss of appetite, and sleeping difficulty. It also gives strength to the patient to continue with other activities of daily living.

Talking to your physician
If you or any of your close friends or family has been diagnosed with a serious condition, palliative care may be very beneficial. Do not hesitate to speak to your physician about it.
