Specialized medical care for people of all ages living with a serious illness

Palliative care is a fairly recent medical specialty. It is not the same as a hospice, which serves only the dying. Instead, it focuses on improving the patient’s quality of life. It provides comfort to people of all ages with serious, chronic, and life-threatening illnesses.

These diseases include kidney failure, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, AIDS, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s, among others.

Pain and difficulty in breathing are two of the most frequent and serious symptoms experienced by patients in need of palliative care.

Get qualified nursing early in the illness

Palliative care is most effective when considered early in the course of the illness. Early palliative care not only improves quality of life for patients but also reduces unnecessary hospitalizations and use of health-care services.

Palliative care provides relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. It prevents and relieves suffering through the early identification, correct assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, whether physical or psychosocial.

A team approach with Allmed professionals

Palliative care uses a team approach to support patients and their caregivers. This includes addressing practical needs and providing bereavement counselling. It offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible.
