Palliative care is for any person suffering from an incurable or chronic disease like Cancer, Chronic Renal Failure, COPD, Heart Ailment, neurological diseases, Alzheimer’s etc. Palliative care can be given at any stage of chronic illness. You can be looked after simultaneously by your primary doctor as well as the palliative care specialist. The goal of Palliative care is to make the patient and family comfortable and address issues that are routinely not spoken about like proper treatment, goals of care and helps the patient make the right choices. Palliative care is all about having realistic hope at every stage of the disease. Palliative care also gives an extra layer to the existing team and treatment process.
