Palliative Care & Hospice Care Services
There comes a time when we must say our goodbyes. A Palliative Care Plan can help us through this challenging time in our lives.
The initial shock of learning about a terminal illness can be quite devastating for both the patient and family member alike. We all experience surprise, disbelief and anger before the reality of the situation sets in. When that happens, a whole host of questions begin to arise for individuals and their families. When faced with determining how best to move forward, many individuals find themselves asking questions such as:
“Can I remain in my own home?”
“Do I need to go to a hospice?”
“What is palliative care and how can it help me and my family?”
According to The World Health Organization, Palliative Care is technically defined as “a compassionate approach to care that acts to improve the quality of life of patients and their families facing the challenges accompanying life-threatening illnesses. This is approached through the means that endeavor to prevent and relieve suffering through early identification and assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.”
Your life is meaningful, as are the emotions that you and your family are facing. Our kindhearted, empathetic and professional team recognize that no one can truly understand the emotions and feelings that you and your family are experiencing after a clinician has told you that you have limited time left. We can, however, work hard to make sure you are able to maintain your dignity while facing the challenge of accepting mortality.
