Palliative Services

Palliative Services

Palliative care is available when you first learn you have a life-limiting (terminal) illness.
You might be able to receive palliative care while you are still receiving other therapies
to treat your condition.

If you have an illness that cannot be cured, palliative care makes you as comfortable as
possible by managing your pain and other distressing symptoms. It also involves
psychological, social and spiritual support for you and your family or carers. This is
called a holistic approach, because it deals with you as a “whole" person, not just your illness or symptoms.

Palliative services includes but is not limited to:

● Safety Management

● Companionship

● Medication Management

● Personal Care

● Mobility / Transfers

● Working with Clinical Professionals
