In the last few years, end-of-life and palliative care standards have shifted. Palliative care incorporates end-of-life care, but it also includes a lot more. Palliative care is the treatment of people who suffer from a life threatening illness for which there is no cure or total regression of the disease or its progression. It entails managing physical symptoms gradually and advancing rather than a quick onset and progression.
While end-of-life care, often known as hospice care, is a type of palliative care that focuses on critical patients nearing the end of their lives. End-of-life care focuses on preserving the quality of life dependent on advance care planning while also providing legal assistance. The focus on helping patients to die naturally is an integral feature of end-of-life care.
The most comprehensive Palliative Care Singapore enables you to remain in the place where you are most at ease, accompanied by memories and loved ones. At home, you can get professional assistance and manage chronic pain from a caregiver who is skilled in palliative care anytime you need one.
The palliative care team covers personal care, managing pain for physical and neurological symptoms, medication administration, meal management, and companionship care.
Palliative care can sometimes enhance a patient's health for various reasons: nutritional needs are satisfied, medications are managed, they are socially engaged daily, they receive more constant medical and individual help, and so on.
Some patients improve and are no longer in need of palliative care. Others with chronic conditions, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), may enter and leave palliative care as needed. If a cure for a life-threatening condition remains unclear, palliative treatment can help patients live much better.
Home palliative care is available for the elderly who prefer to stay in the safety and convenience of their own homes. We have 24-hour attentive personal care personnel and skilled healthcare specialists on-call 24 hours each day in the community.
Palliative care can commence at any point throughout your illness, even before you're diagnosed and receive treatment. You will not have to delay before the condition worsens to an advanced phase until either you're nearing the end of your life to get help. Palliative treatment should be made as soon as possible.
RC Caregivers does have an assisted living facility that is an excellent option for government-subsidised nursing homes in Singapore. The patient may apply for palliative care services in the Inpatient Hospice Palliative Care Service (IHPCS). It helps end-of-life patients who have yet to be cared for at home and needs inpatient treatment. A medical practitioner must assess the patient to decide if IHPCS is suitable for their condition.
RC Caregivers is driven to deliver exceptional senior care available. We offer a range of palliative care packages, spanning short-term to long-term, with various care durations, so that either you or your ageing loved one can choose one that ideally suits your requirements and preferences.
An RC Caregivers palliative care visit can last around one hour at the least, relying on the requests of the family and the needs of the patient.
Palliative care can endure for years in certain circumstances, and you can have it at any point during your disease, such as when you're dying. Palliative care measures can assist in managing pain and other symptoms during such a time.
