Palliative Care To Bring Comfort, Dignity, & Peace of Mind
Losing a senior loved one is never easy. Losing them to a debilitating life-threatening ailment can be even more stressful, especially where medical treatment is unsuccessful, and the future becomes even more uncertain.
In many such situations, palliative care often becomes the course of action. While it has gained awareness as a concept in the last few years, the decision to have a loved one placed in palliative care can be a life changing decision for the loved one as well as their family.
Palliative care typically refers to care for someone who is not fit for or has gone through all possible medical treatments that should improve the course of illness.
Although it can include end of life care, palliative care is broader and can last for longer. Having palliative care doesn't necessarily mean that one is likely to pass soon – some people have palliative care for years.
