What is palliative care?

Palliative care specializes in relieving the symptoms and stress of life-limiting illness. Symptoms may be physical, emotional, or spiritual. The goal is to improve quality of life for patients and their family members. Palliative care may be appropriate at any point in an illness, from diagnosis on, and it can be provided at the same time as treatment that is meant to cure the patient.

A key benefit of palliative care is that it is customized to meet patient needs. Patients and their caregivers, along with our professional team, set the goals for care, which focuses on physical, emotional, social, and practical needs.

What is hospice care?
We help patients manage their symptoms & improve their quality of life. We currently can only provide help in the patient’s home; however, plans are underway for residential hospice centre. Our goal is to help our patients enjoy their life in dignity for as long as they live.

Patient-Centered Care – You’re in Control
The hospice philosophy of care focuses on the patient as the center of care. Our individualized, patient- and family-centered care is based on the principles of comfort, dignity, and choice. Ongoing discussion with the patient about patient’s symptoms and prognosis, as well as their goals for care and how they want to spend the time they have left is big part of our care coordination and planning.

Our focus also will be on the patient’s family and their needs. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life of everyone involved with the patient.
