Palliative care page under construction, please check back soon.

Palliative care is a form of care that focuses on improving the quality of life for people with life-limiting illnesses.

It also supports families and caregivers, including through advice on caregiving, practical support and emotional support.

Palliative care is not designed to slow down or speed up the dying process. It helps people live as actively as possible by improving their quality of life until death.
