What is Palliative Care? 

Palliative care may be offered to your loved one if they suffer from a life-threatening or terminal illness and it is likely that they won’t see it past 12 months. They may be receiving palliative care for a few days, weeks or months to make them as comfortable as possible. The aim of palliative care is to ensure you have a high-quality end of life by reducing symptoms including pain relief. As well as an incurable illness you may receive palliative care if you have had an accident.

End of life care

You may also receive palliative care early in the course of your illness while you are receiving other treatment such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy to keep the pain at bay while you are dealing with the treatments.

Palliative care is to make your loved one as comfortable as possible in the later stages of their life. If you have a loved one who may need palliative care then it can be provided to them in hospital, care homes, hospices or at home. Most hospitals have palliative care teams available, as the patient you or your loved one has the choice of where to receive it.
