Palliative care is a term that is often used interchangeably with end of life care. However, palliative care differs slightly in the sense that it revolves around pain management during terminal illness, as opposed to an all-encompassing care solution.
Palliative care is a sometimes-necessary tool utilised in the caregiving process. It ensures that people suffering from painful illnesses can retain a better quality of life.
My Care My Home are well versed in the process of sourcing palliative care at home or in residential care homes. Keep reading to discover how we can help.
Palliative care covers the medical treatment, support and assistance that is provided to patients suffering from chronic or terminal illness. The practice has a specific objective of relieving painful symptoms to help suffering patients live comfortably.
There are many steps involved with providing palliative care. However, the goal is always the same: to adhere to a patient’s needs and improve their quality of life.
Provided that there are justifiable needs, anyone can receive palliative care to help alleviate their pain.
Individuals that may demand palliative care more than others include elderly people, cancer patients, and those suffering from long-term medical illness.
There are many things that affect our health as we get older, but this does not mean that you should suffer. Contact us to see how we can help.
Palliative care does not end with patients. Watching a loved one go through pain is devastating, but our team can help you cope.
