Palliative care may be the right choice for you if you have a chronic illness, need relief from suffering, and require help to improve your quality of life and regain the ability to complete your daily activities.
Palliative care is about making you as comfortable and peaceful as possible, with pain management and psychological support. We do this by placing an emphasis on communication between our interdisciplinary team of medical experts and you and your loved ones.
Many people confuse the benefits of palliative care with hospice. They are not the same. Unlike hospice care, palliative care does not discontinue curative treatment and does not require your illness to be end-stage or terminal.
