Palliative Care and Hospice Care

palliative care bruce greyThere comes a time when we must say our goodbyes. A Palliative Care or Hospice Care Plan can help us through this challenging time in our lives.

The feelings of shock that come along with receiving a diagnosis of a terminal illness can be deeply devastating and distressing for patients and their families. There is a process of dealing with feelings of disbelief, distress and anger prior to the setting in of reality. Once we begin to accept the diagnosis and all that comes along with it, there are a great many questions that start to arise for individuals and their families alike.

When faced with determining how best to move forward, many individuals find themselves asking questions such as:

“Can I remain in my own home?”

“Do I need to go to a hospice?”

“What is palliative care and how can it help me and my family?”

The World Health Organization characterizes Palliative Care as “a compassionate approach to providing care that works to create better quality of life for patients and their families who are encountering the difficulties that come with life-threatening illnesses. This care takes place through means that attempt to prevent and relieve suffering through early assessment and identification and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.”

Your life is imbued with a great deal of meaning, and the emotions that you and your family are feeling are also deeply meaningful. Our thoughtful, empathetic and experienced team works with an understanding of the fact that no other person can truly understand the feelings and emotions that you and your family are dealing with after a healthcare professional has informed you that your time is limited. What we can do is put a great deal of heart and effort into ensuring that you are able to hold on to all of your dignity while dealing with the overwhelming task of accepting mortality.
