PALLIATIVE CARE

What is Abundant Life Palliative Care?

 

 

Palliative care is defined as medical specialty focused on relief of the pain, stress and other debilitating symptoms of serious illness. Often, certain ill patients simply require care instead of a cure.

 

Ever heard a healthcare worker say "there is nothing more we can do" ? Patients say this is worse than hearing the diagnosis.

 

Palliative Care is "Step UP Care", "There is so MUCH MORE we can do!"

Palliative Care is more intensive care, care planning, counselling, educating, supporting, their till death and beyond, including bereavement.

 

 

"Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual."
