Palliative Care, Hospice Care &
For each of us, there comes a time we must say goodbye. Having the proper Palliative Care in place can help everyone through this challenging time.
After initial shock associated with a chronic or terminal illness diagnosis begins to wear off and the new sense of reality begins to set in, a whole new bundle of questions begin to come forward for individuals and their families. When faced with the undertaking of having to decide the best course of action for moving forward, individuals may find themselves asking questions such as:
“What is palliative care and how can it help me and my family?”
“Do I need to go to a hospice?”
“Can I remain in my own home?”
According to The World Health Organization, Palliative Care can be described as a compassionate approach to care that aims to improve the quality of life for patients and their families facing the challenges associated with life-threatening illnesses. This form of care is offered through methods and means that aim to minimize and relieve suffering through early identification and ideal assessment, as well as treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
