What Is Palliative Care?

Palliative care, also called end of life or comfort care, is a type of health care for patients and their families when facing life threatening illness or old age. The focus of palliative care is to maximize the patient’s quality of life and ensuring a comfortable environment during this difficult time. Palliative care is concerned with treating both the physical symptoms that patients may experience as well as their emotional and spiritual concerns. The care also entails many regular caregiving duties, to ease the burden on you and your loved one.

Why Choose Palliative Care?

End of life decisions are always difficult for seniors as well as their families. Palliative care enables seniors to continue aging with dignity and comfort in their own homes. Many seniors find that living in their own homes during this difficult time adds comfort and increases their quality of life compared to spending their remaining time in a nursing home or medical center.

Discuss your loved one's preferences with them to see what care option can fulfill their wishes. Our caregivers are also available to live with your loved one in The Greater Toronto Area to provide around-the-clock care. You can read more on live in caregivers here. WHERE?? Take out this sentence?
