Palliative Care


Palliative care is presented to patients and families each day, but many people are confused as to what this means and how to navigate. This is why having an independent patient advocate can be critical to understanding how to navigate this option and what it really means. There are situations where people feel pushed into palliative care and they have not been well informed. Palliative care is an approach focused on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of serious illnesses, regardless of the diagnosis. The primary goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family. However, many people get scared and feel alone in these situations so having a patient advocate can provide guidance and peace of mind in their decision making.
