Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness, such as cancer or heart failure. Patients in palliative care may receive medical care for their symptoms, or palliative care, along with treatment intended to cure their serious illness. Palliative care is meant to enhance a person's current care by focusing on quality of life for them and their family.
Palliative care is a resource for anyone living with a serious illness such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer, dementia, Parkinson's, and many more.
Patients in palliative care may receive medical care for their symptoms, or palliative care, along with treatment intended to cure their serious illness.
In addition to improving quality of life and helping with symptoms, palliative care can help patients understand their choices for medical treatment. The organized services available through palliative care may be helpful to any older person having a lot of general discomfort and disability very late in life.
Palliative care is helpful at any stage of illness and is provided soon after a patient is diagnosed.
