Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illness. It focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family care for the terminally ill and their families, especially that provided by an organized health service
The effective relief of pain in a palliative patient depends mainly on a comprehensive assessment to identify the different physical, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects that are specific to each patient, and optimally intervene on a multidisciplinary level. The pain syndrome must be assessed with detail to ascertain which components of pain prevail, as this will lead to the optimal choice of intervention (i.e., pharmacological, interventional) for each individual.
Murugan hospitals patients often include people with:
• Advanced cancer
• Advanced heart, kidney, liver or lung disease
• Advanced neuromuscular disease
• End-Stage Alzheimer's
Our focus is not on curing a person who is ill. Instead, we emphasize patient comfort and provide family support. From helping family members learn to care for loved ones to providing support services for old age care, we're here to help.
