Palliative Care

Managing end of life with dignity

Palliative care improves the quality of life where there is a life-limiting illness. The aim of palliative care is to achieve the best possible quality of life for the patient and provide support for their loved ones.

Palliative care requires a team-based approach and may include a number of different health care professionals, support workers, community supports, family and friends.

The involvement of each team member will be based on the needs of the person receiving care.

The care team at CarePilot has extensive experience in coordinating and managing end-of-life care. They know how difficult it can be as someone nears the final stages of life but through it all, you can trust that they will be there by your side ensuring you and your loved one’s wishes are honoured with respect and dignity.
