Timing for Palliative Care

Palliative care can be provided for anyone at any stage of their life-limiting illness. It is provided regardless of whether or not the patient is still receiving curative treatment. The goal of palliative care is to improve patient quality of life, manage symptoms and set goals for the patient’s healthcare.

Social workers, chaplains, nurses and other members of the patient’s care team can help navigate the care journey.
