What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is the special care of a person whose disease cannot be cured. Palliative care provides comfort and support to the person and family. Palliative care does not hasten or delay death. The goals of palliative care are to: ease pain and other symptoms (such as depression, upset stomach), help the person to have a clear mind and support the person, family and friends.
