Palliative Care Ottawa – Compassionate Service
There comes a time when each one of us must say goodbye. Having the proper Palliative Care in place can help everyone through this challenging time.
Once the initial shock associated with the diagnosis of a chronic or terminal illness begins to wear off and reality starts to set in, a whole host of questions begin to arise for individuals and their families. When faced with the task of having to determine how best to move forward, individuals may find themselves asking questions such as:
“What is palliative care and how can it help me and my family?”
“Do I need to go to a hospice?”
“Can I remain in my own home?”
According to The World Health Organization, Palliative Care can be defined as a compassionate approach to care that acts to improve the quality of life of patients and their families facing the challenges accompanying life-threatening illnesses. This is approached through the means that endeavor to prevent and relieve suffering through early identification and immaculate assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
