Palliative Care is care focussed on reducing and relieving the symptoms of advanced, progressive illnesses. These include illnesses like cancer, advanced heart, kidney or lung disease and neurological diseases such as motor neurone disease.
The aim of Palliative Care is to obtain the best possible quality of life for patients and their families or carers until the end of life. Palliative Care is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided together with a curative treatment.
