Palliative care is a team approach to caring for those suffering from serious and chronic illnesses such as cardiac disease, COPD, Alzheimer’s, cancer and many more. Palliative care focuses on symptoms such as pain, nausea, sleep disorders, fatigue and depression in order to improve the quality of life for the patient.
The team most often includes a doctor, nurse, palliative care specialist and family members. Home Instead of Vancouver CAREGivers also be a valuable member of the palliative care team. Our CAREGivers can handle many day-to-day chores to free up more time for family caregivers.
