Palliative Care is focused health care for people with serious, chronic health conditions. It provides individuals with relief from the symptoms of pain and strain of a serious illness they experience day to day. The outcome is to improve quality of life for the individual and their family.
Palliative Care is coordinated by a team health care professionals like doctors, nurses, and other health care providers who work together in the individual’s best interest to provide an additional level of support. This type of care can be provided along with any curative treatments the individual is undertaking. There are no limits of age, health condition or physical status.
