Introducing Palliative Care in Toronto and Mississauga
Undergoing treatment for cancer or other serious illnesses is a draining process. Treatments can leave a person feeling fatigued, depressed, and cause side effects such as nausea, anxiety, difficulty breathing, difficulty sleeping, or loss of appetite. Palliative Care can treat these symptoms and make it easier for Seniors to decide to undergo primary treatment in the first place.
According to the World Health Organization, 40 million people require Palliative Care every year. Anytime you’re concerned about the quality of life for you or your loved one undergoing treatment for a serious illness, this type of care may be appropriate to help reduce or relieve pain and other symptoms.
Integracare’s at-home Palliative Care Caregivers can help improve communication between Clients and primary health care providers through patient advocacy and introducing discussions about symptom management and treatment.
