Palliative care encompasses highly specialized care for individuals who have serious illnesses. The goal is to improve overall quality of life by providing relief from symptoms, reducing suffering, and easing the stress that results. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and home health care providers to address every aspect of the disease. Palliative care is usually administered to individuals suffering from Alzheimer, Parkinson, kidney failure, COPD, or cancer. This type of care can involve everything from pain management to spiritual support for the patient family. Caregivers can help by organizing meals, medications, and transportation to doctor visits for appointments and frequent medical tests.
