Cancer is a life-threatening illness that can cause several troubling symptoms. Cancer treatment, additionally, can be mentally and physically taxing for the patients. Palliative care is offered along with medical care to help patients cope with these symptoms in a better manner. Palliative care extends help with nutritional guidance, treatment & their side effects, relaxation techniques and support for the patient and their caregivers.
Palliative care includes taking care of different aspects of a patient’s health. These include:
Physical: Cancer can cause physical effects such as pain, persistent fatigue, breathlessness and loss of appetite. Palliative care offers effective ways to help navigate these problems.
Mental: Cancer and its treatment can take a toll on your mental health. It is common to feel anxious or depressed due to cancer. Palliative care involves mental health support, counselling, therapy and other forms of guidance.
Emotional: Dealing with cancer can be emotionally exhausting for you and your caregivers. It is important to address any emotional grievances such as anger and sadness. Palliative care provides effective ways to help deal with these emotions.
Social: Living with cancer can alter your social lifestyle and leave you feeling alone. Palliative care allows patients to have a social life without many obstacles.
