Palliative Care Pickering – Compassionate Service
For each of us, there comes a time we must say goodbye. The services we offer with our Palliative Care Pickering can implement the proper Palliative Care to help everyone through this challenging time.
After initial shock associated with a chronic or terminal illness diagnosis begins to wear off and the new sense of reality begins to set in, a whole new bundle of questions begin to come forward for individuals and their families. When faced with the undertaking of having to decide the best course of action for moving forward, individuals may find themselves asking questionws such as:
“What is Palliative Care Pickering and how can it help me and my family?”
“Do I need to go to a hospice or other institution?”
“Can I remain in my own home?”
Palliative Care Pickering – Overview
According to The World Health Organization, Palliative Care can be described as a compassionate approach to care that aims to improve the quality of life for patients and their families facing the challenges associated with life-threatening illnesses. This form of care is offered through methods and means that aim to minimize and relieve suffering through early identification and ideal assessment, as well as treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
Your life is important, as are each and every one of the emotions that are being felt by you and your family. The compassionate, thoughtful, empathetic, and professional team at Affinity Health knows that no one can really understand the unique set of emotions and feelings that you are experiencing after being told by a doctor that your time is limited. We can, however, work hard to ensure you maintain your dignity while facing the challenge of accepting mortality.
