Palliative Care

Palliative Care is medical care that relieves pain, symptoms and stress caused by serious, chronic, and life-threatening illnesses. This specialized care helps people at any age, at any stage of a disease, and can be provided along with curative treatment.

It focuses on a whole-person treatment approach for the physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of an illness – to maximize the quality of life for both the patients and their loved ones.
