End of life care (palliative care)

When chronic illnesses progress to a point when there are no further treatments available, end-of-life (palliative) care, may be an option for you and your family. Palliative care is a system of support services, which may involve healthcare professionals, home-care services and bereavement counsellors, depending on your needs.
