Palliative care

What do we mean by our palliative care?

Palliative care is a specialised type of care which focuses on managing the symptoms and complications associated with chronic or progressive diseases. The goal of palliative care is to improve the quality of life for individuals and their families by addressing their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Some of the key features of palliative care for the elderly include:

Pain and symptom management: focuses on managing the physical symptoms associated with chronic or progressive diseases, such as pain, nausea, and shortness of breath. Qualified staff work closely with the individual to develop a personalized plan for pain and symptom management, which may include medications, physical therapy, and other interventions.

Emotional and spiritual support: addresses the emotional and spiritual needs of the individual and their family members. This may include support to help individuals cope with the emotional stress of a serious illness, as well as spiritual care and support for those who have religious or spiritual beliefs.

Advance care planning: also focuses on advanced care planning, which involves discussions about end-of-life care and the individual’s preferences for medical treatment. These discussions may include topics such as resuscitation and life-sustaining treatments.
