Palliative care is specialized care for people living with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness-whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.
These services are appropriate for any age, at any stage in a serious illness, and can be provided together with curative treatment.
