At Pilgrim Place we provide emotional and spiritual support for residents, as well as good medical care. We believe they want to be free from severe pain and suffering.
Palliative care does not replace primary treatment, rather it works with primary treatment to prevent and ease suffering and improve quality of life.
Palliative care gives residents a chance to live their life comfortably. It provides relief from distressing symptoms including pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, sleep problems, and many other symptoms. It can help with the side effects of medical treatments.
The palliative care team at Pilgrim Place will strive to provide treatment choices and the management of stressful symptoms that reduce the quality of life.
