Palliative care for patients and families
Chronic illness is difficult to cope with – whether you’re the one being treated or you’re seeing a loved one in pain. Palliative care is a specialized approach to treating the physical symptoms of a serious illness as well as the mental, emotional and spiritual pain that accompany it.
