Palliative care, often referred to as end of life care or comfort care, is a special type of home health care designed for patients with life threatening conditions and their families. Providing care and making sure the patient is comfortable in such condition is the main focus of palliative care, which allows the patient to spend their time with their loved ones and partake in activities that they always wanted to. Palliative care also entails many basic care services such as assistance with activities of daily living and transportation.
There comes a point when we realize we are not immortal and we need to start considering options such as maximizing comfort instead of continuing to stay in the hospital. Such decisions aren’t very easy for both seniors and their families. Palliative care provides comfort to seniors in their own homes,which allows them to spend much needed time with their families. Many seniors prefer to spend time in their homes instead of hospitals and palliative care makes this choice a possibility by providing highly qualified caregivers and nurses to make sure they get the best possible care while they get to spend time with their loved ones.
