What Is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Its goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care focuses on symptoms. It also helps to gain the strength to carry on with daily life. It improves the ability to tolerate medical treatments. And it helps to have more control over patient’s care by improving their understanding of their choices for treatment
