What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, often referred to as end-of-life care, is provided to individuals who have a terminal illness or are in the final weeks, months, and years of their life. The range of conditions requiring palliative care can vary from natural deterioration to more complex terminal illnesses.

The utmost priority in palliative care is to ensure comfort for those receiving it. The primary objective is to alleviate their pain and manage other symptoms while preserving their dignity and respecting their wishes.

Furthermore, palliative care extends support to the loved ones of those receiving it, allowing them to spend quality time together and providing the assistance they need during this challenging period.
