A palliative approach to care can help improve quality of life, reduce stress and provide relief for individuals with serious illness – and their families. Palliative care is about living as well as you can with a life-limiting condition, and choosing to access care from a health-care facility, personal care home – or from the comfort of your own home. Palliative care services at Eastern Health are offered by an interdisciplinary team of health providers.
