Palliative Care & Geriatric Medicine
Palliative Care provides specialized, multidisciplinary medical care for people with serious illnesses. It is focused on improving quality of life for both the patient and the family—providing relief from the symptoms, pain and stresses of a serious illness—whatever the diagnosis.
Palliative care is appropriate at any stage of a serious illness and can be provided at the same time as life-prolonging treatment.
