Live-in Care for Palliative Care and End of Life Care

Palliative care is treatment, care, and support that are provided to the terminally ill to enhance their quality of life. Palliative care services are also extended to the friends and family of the patient involved who may be impacted adversely by undue stress. This is why palliative care is often coined as 'supportive care'. Palliative care aims at improving the overall wellness and emotional wellbeing of people who are affected by chronic and serious illnesses. Anyone, going through a terminal illness can avail of this service. The kind of assistance provided depends on the patient and their needs. This means palliative care is never the same for two patients. It is often personalised, and carefully scheduled by a physician.

During palliative care, the following goals are met:

* Understand the practical needs of the service user.
* Support the service user with their spiritual requirements.
* Help in treating (or handling) the side effects of their medical treatments. This is very important because service users with serious illnesses are often intimidated by side effects.

A life-limiting illness has no cure, but can only be managed. These illnesses are also referred to as life-threatening' or 'terminal'. Other terms in common use to describe these illnesses are 'advanced' or 'progressive'. A few examples that fall under the gamut of life-limiting illnesses are motor neuron disease (MND), dementia, and advanced cancer. Being put under palliative care does not necessarily translate into a death scenario. Palliative care is offered at any stage of life merely as a means to improve the quality of life. Palliative care can be accompanied by any treatment modalities used to control your illnesses. Palliative care can be administered alongside chemotherapy and radiotherapy to provide comfort to the service user and ease their pain.

Some Conditions that need palliative care:

Some health conditions cannot be tackled without the help of palliative care. This includes dementia, cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. These are three conditions where palliative care proves to be useful.

In the past few years, palliative support has been strongly linked with cancer. This is because the treatment and care used to handle the signs and symptoms of cancer can make a big difference in the patient’s life. The care provided strongly depends on the type of cancer. Also, it depends on the prognosis, treatment, signs, and age.

Dementia is a debilitating disease that requires eye-to-eye attention. This is because the behaviour, judgment skills, cognition, and language abilities of the patient are impaired during dementia. With time, dementia can make life difficult for patient and his/her family. This is when palliative care becomes extremely important.

Another health condition that calls for palliative support would be COPD. Unlike cancer and dementia – COPD needs experts who are trained in respiratory procedures. They need to alleviate the patient from serious difficulty in breathing.
