What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, which is also known as end-of-life care, is a care service given to those who are living with a critical illness or health condition and who are in the last stages of their lives. Someone may be nearing the end of their life due to natural deterioration or a terminal illness or life-threatening health condition.

Making sure the individual is as comfortable as possible is the main objective when providing palliative care in a care facility, by reducing a person’s pain and symptoms, as well as ensuring dignity is preserved and wishes are fulfilled.

Loved ones are also supported by care professionals, and where individuals can spend time with their families whilst everyone receives the support they need to help get them through this difficult time.
