Palliative Care is a special type of care for people suffering from serious illness with little to no chance of cure.
This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms, as well as to alleviate the stress and anxiety that carers may feel due to a life-threatening condition.
Palliative, or end of life, care is aimed at improving quality of life – physically, psychologically and socially – of both patients and their families. It allows patients to comfortably live with a life-limiting condition.
Pearl Home Care’s Palliative Care is provided by a team of specially trained nurses and other professionals who work collaboratively with patients to provide them with much-needed support during the final phase of their life. A unique aspect of End of Life Care is that instead of focussing on a patient’s prognosis, it focuses on the needs of the patient. It can be provided at any age or stage of a disease and can be provided in tandem with any curative treatment.
Who can benefit from palliative care?
Palliative or end of life care at home can be provided to people of any age, who have a serious incurable illness. This may include motor neuron disorders, cancer, end-stage lung or kidney disease, and more.
For some individuals, it is beneficial, right from the time of diagnosis and can be delivered alongside regular medical treatment.
