Our team of experienced professionals at HSAJB Surgery is committed to providing you with the best possible care, which includes palliative care. We believe that everyone deserves to live the rest of their lives comfortably with dignity, and we work hard to make that a reality for our patients.
When should you consider palliative care?
Palliative care should be considered from the start of your journey. It shouldn't be considered an alternative or a means to an end but a supporting hand as you work through your illness. The importance of palliative care may become more apparent as you approach the end of your journey.
Palliative care is about appreciating the time we have living instead of focusing on death and dying. The aim is for patients to spend time with loved ones, to finish unwritten works and be as comfortable as possible up till the end.
