Palliative care focuses on improving the quality of life with specialized medical care for people facing serious illness, or after a life changing injury. Palliative care helps with pain, nausea, shortness of breath, fatigue and emotional stress of serious illness —whatever the cause.
Care is provided, along with other treatments such as intensive care, cardiac or cancer care. Palliative Care serves as an extra layer of support to the patient and family.
