Palliative care goes beyond care at end-of-life

Unlike end-of-life or palliative care, which takes place after someone has stopped curative treatment, palliative care can improve the quality of life of those with life-threatening conditions, whether or not a cure is available.

For example, someone with cancer at a curable stage could be undergoing chemotherapy and receiving palliative care at the same time to manage the symptoms and side effects of both the condition and treatment, such as pain and nausea.

Palliative care involves caring for the body, mind and spirit of an individual, which can be a lot for an untrained family caregiver to undertake. In fact, a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers and counsellors usually work together to deliver holistic palliative care to individuals.

On top of caring for their loved one, family caregivers will also need to keep their emotions in check to avoid affecting the one they care for, which can make caregiving both physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting.

Improving quality of life through home palliative care

Having a professional caregiver or nurse with the right experience can help you better understand what to expect and guide you along your care journey.

A caregiver or nurse trained and experienced in palliative care manages the pain and symptoms caused by your loved one’s condition and/or the treatment they are undergoing. Palliative-trained professionals will also provide mental and emotional support and fulfil the goals and desire of your loved one to the best of their ability.

Through improving holistic well-being, quality palliative and hospice care can empower individuals to find purpose and live life to the fullest.

Besides caring for your loved one, having someone around who understands your loved one’s conditions and care needs as well as how tough caregiving is, can be reassuring to the caregiver.
