What is palliative care?
People who are suffering from a terminal illness need empathy more than sympathy. It is important to ensure that they have the best care that can be provided to make sure that they are as comfortable as possible. Palliative care provides this succour. It is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of an illness. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.
When would you look for palliative care?
Most families in India look after their own. As the illness of their loved one progress, they give up their life entirely and focus on the patient. This is a lofty ideal but very often, the terminally ill can be sick for a very long time and it can be painful and traumatic to watch.
The caregiver will have to deal with the fact that their loved one is dying as well as keep a brave front and look after them. This can take a toll on the caregiver. That is why palliative care is a great option. You don’t have to send away your loved one to a nursing home. You can look after them at home as long as you get some respite from the constant care giving and can take a break once in a while.
