Palliative Hospice for Incurable

Terminally ill need holistic support…

Men, women and children at terminal stage of illnesses like cancer face difficult times which are compounded by grief, expenses and pain. At this stage, it is imperative that holistic emotional support is made available to the patient and the family members. This is where hospices step in to provide palliative care to the terminally sick.

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day which is commemorated on October 10 every year, is a day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world.

Palliative care by hospices…

Palliative care is the treatment focusing on reducing pain and symptoms, so that the patient can bear the ordeal. Such palliative care does not involve any curative treatment, because the disease would have progressed to the terminal stage.

Hospices are the places where palliative care is provided to terminally ill patients of cancer, HIV, thalassemia and so on. In addition, hospices see to it that the patient’s emotional and spiritual needs are met. Some hospices conduct recreational and entertainment activities so that patients are able to divert their minds off from their distressed physical condition. Ultimately, the objective is to ensure that the patients spend their last days with peace, dignity, care and love.
