Palliative Care That Improves Quality of Life
Palliative care is similar to hospice care in that it is intended for seniors who have serious or life-threatening illnesses. It’s commonly used by patients who are diagnosed with:
- Heart disease
- Lung disease
- Kidney failure
- Parkinson’s disease
Palliative care is used to improve a patient’s quality of life. Steps are taken to ensure that they are comfortable regardless of what stage of disease they are in.
Palliative care will be used to reduce pain and other complex physical and emotional symptoms. Management may include reducing anxiety, constipation, nausea, insomnia, fatigue, depression, shortness of breath, and loss of appetite.
Families can choose palliative care when a loved one is facing the end of their life. It can help them stay calm and comfortable during the dying process.
It is also used by seniors who are not dying but face a serious disease that lowers their quality of life. It can be administered alongside a treatment plan.
