What is end of life and palliative care?
Naturally, confronting the palliative care phase is extremely difficult and distressing – both for the individual and for their loved ones. Therefore, the aim of end of life care is to make this stage as comfortable and calm as possible. Effective pain management and a wide range of empathetic, compassionate support are essential. A holistic approach considers the person as a whole and ensures that all of their emotional and spiritual needs, as much as their medical needs, are addressed.
