Palliative care is a specialized form of medical care designed to provide relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness, regardless of the diagnosis or stage of disease. It focuses on improving the quality of life for both the patient and their family by addressing physical discomfort, emotional concerns, spiritual issues, and practical needs. Through a multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers, palliative care offers an added layer of support, working in conjunction with other treatments to manage pain, minimize side effects, and provide emotional and psychological support. Unlike hospice care, palliative care can be initiated at any point in the illness trajectory and can be provided alongside curative treatments, aiming to ease the journey through chronic or life-limiting conditions.
Our palliative care service is specifically designed to provide support and relief to individuals facing serious illness. This approach focuses on improving the quality of life for patients and their families through the management of symptoms, pain, and stress associated with chronic or life-limiting conditions. Understanding the complex needs of those dealing with serious illness, our team of palliative care specialists—including physicians, nurses, social workers, and spiritual counselors—works collaboratively to tailor care plans that address not only physical discomfort but also emotional, social, and spiritual concerns. Our goal is to ensure that patients can live as fully and comfortably as possible, despite their illness. By prioritizing communication, we facilitate discussions about treatment preferences and goals of care, empowering patients and families to make informed decisions that reflect their values and wishes.

A palliative care team is a multidisciplinary group of healthcare professionals who work together to improve the quality of life for patients with serious illnesses, regardless of the stage or prognosis. This team typically includes palliative care physicians and nurses who specialize in pain and symptom management, social workers who provide emotional support and assistance with practical needs, and spiritual care counselors who offer spiritual support according to the patient's beliefs and values. Our palliative care team also consists of Pharmacists who ensure optimal medication management, and sometimes volunteers who offer additional companionship and support. Together, this team offers a comprehensive approach to care, focusing on the patient's and family's goals, preferences, and needs, aiming to relieve suffering and provide the best possible quality of life.
Palliative care is a versatile and patient-centered service that can be provided in a multitude of settings, ensuring that patients receive comprehensive support wherever they are on their healthcare journey. It can be delivered in hospitals, where a specialized team works alongside the primary medical team to offer an extra layer of support. Palliative care is also available in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, providing comfort and managing symptoms for residents with serious illnesses. For those who prefer to stay in the comfort of their own homes, palliative care can be administered at home, bringing medical, emotional, and spiritual care directly to the patient and easing the burden on families. Additionally, some outpatient clinics offer palliative care services, allowing patients to receive support while continuing with their regular activities or treatments. This flexibility ensures that palliative care meets the needs of patients and families, offering them the right support, in the right place, at the right time.
