All About Palliative Care

All About Palliative Care

Dame Cicely Saunders is the founder of Palliative care.

We're talking today all about Palliative care. Palliative care focuses on improving the overall wellness of individuals with serious illnesses. It addresses both the symptoms and the stress of living with a chronic disease. It may also involve support for loved ones or caregivers.

Palliate comes from pallium, the Latin word for ‘cloak.’ To palliate is to cloak, or cover-up, the symptoms of an illness without curing it. This meaning grew into the idea of alleviating or reducing suffering. Interesting, yes?

In this episode, you'll learn the difference between hospice and Palliative care. There is a time and a place for each type of care, understanding the difference is beneficial.

We discuss the difference between Palliative care for people living with a disease like cancer versus Alzheimer's. It's a bit more difficult to know when to initiate Palliative care for someone living with dementia. By learning the differences in care options early you'll have a better idea of when the time is right.

Being a caregiver to someone living with Alzheimer's can be a very long journey. Deploying all the help you can get when you need the extra assistance will help you keep your loved one home.
