Palliative care is a type of medical treatment for those who are suffering from a serious illness. This sort of treatment focuses on alleviating the illness's symptoms and stress. The goal is to improve the patient's and family's quality of life.
Unlike Hospice care, palliative care can begin right after diagnosis, simultaneously with the treatment. Whereas Hospice Care begins once the patient has decided he or she no longer wants to seek curative treatments, palliative care does not apply during terminal illnesses only.
This type of care is offered by our team of specially trained doctors, nurses, and other experts who collaborate with a patient's clinicians to provide an additional layer of support. It is not a replacement for regular treatment, rather than an extension of it. Palliative care is based on the patient's needs rather than their prognosis. It can be given at any age and at any stage of a serious illness, and it can be given in conjunction with curative treatment.
The Palliative care offered by Beta Hospice helps provide relief from physical problems such as pain, breathlessness, sleep deprivation, loss of appetite, etc. In addition, we offer services like Counselling, Support groups, and Family meetings to tackle the emotional and social stress Patients and their families face during the illness.
