End of Life and Palliative Care
End of life care is a part of palliative care for people who are nearing the end of life and aims to help people live as well as possible and to die with dignity.
End of life care refers to health care, not only of individuals in the final hours or days of their lives, but more broadly care of all those with a terminal illness or terminal condition that has become advanced, progressive and incurable.
Palliative Care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness where a cure is no longer possible. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the individual and the family.
