What is End of Life Care?
End of life care encompasses the care provided to individuals with terminal illnesses, focusing on relieving symptoms, managing pain, and reducing the stress of a serious illness. At Trent Home Care, our ultimate goal is to enhance the quality of life for individuals as they approach the end of life. We treat our customers as if they were our own family, developing care plans that revolve around their specific requirements and preferences.
Duration of End of Life Care
End of life care can begin as soon as needed and may last for a few days, months, or even more than a year, depending on the individual's situation. It is suitable for people with various conditions, including those with co-existing illnesses, life-threatening acute conditions, advanced incurable illnesses, or existing conditions where a sudden crisis could lead to death.
Difference between End of Life Care and Palliative Care
While end of life care is specific to individuals nearing the end of their lives, palliative care is broader and can last for an extended period. Palliative care is provided to help manage serious illnesses that cannot be cured, and it can be offered for years to improve the individual's quality of life.
