Palliative Care or Hospice Care is specialized medical care for patients living with a serious illness. This type of care is focused on relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Palliative care is provided by a specially-trained team of doctors and nurses who work with medical specialists to provide an extra layer of support. It can be appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and it can be provided along with curative treatment.
The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
How we work
Palliative Care begins with a detailed review of the patients medical history, including an assessment of his or her current disease state, quality of life, and prognosis. We also interact with family and caregivers to understand their desires and expectations for the patient.
Based on the above, we formulate a customized Care Plan that is suitable for the patient and acceptable to the family.
