What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care improves the quality of life for patients and families facing serious or chronic illness — whatever the diagnosis or prognosis. A palliative approach adds an extra layer of support by addressing the physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual concerns associated with serious and chronic conditions.
