Palliative Care

Palliative Care, also known as end of life care, is a crucially integrated part of person-centered health service. During a terminal and serious illness, palliative care focuses on the person and the family - on improving the quality of life by emphasizing on relief from the symptoms, pain, physical stress, and mental stress.

Relieving serious health-related suffering of an individual, be it physical, psychological, social, or spiritual, is a global ethical responsibility. Thus, whether the cause of suffering is cardiovascular disease, cancer, major organ failure, drug-resistant tuberculosis, severe burns, end-stage chronic illness, acute trauma, extreme birth prematurity or extreme frailty of old age, palliative care may be needed and has to be available at all levels of care.

Palliative care at Epoch

Most of the elderlies who come to Epoch, stay in our assisted living homes for life. Ageing is a natural process and occurs over a period of time, many-a-times with comorbidities, and/or chronic/terminal illnesses. As years go by and they age, many of the elders at our Epoch homes may have to be switched to a palliative care plan.

Our Epoch care team/consultant geriatrician advises and guides the families in planning and managing the end of life care of their elderly loved ones. In all these years at our Epoch homes, many times, we have stood by the side of our elder residents and their families, and have comforted and supported them, as the elderies pass away gently & peacefully.

Our palliative care/end of life plan is philosophy based. It focuses on preserving the elderly’s quality of life as much as possible, keeping in mind the individual’s/family’s wishes and preferences. Our aim is to ensure that they are comfortable, free of pain, surrounded by a lot of warmth, love and care. At the end of life stage, dignity and respect for the elderly is absolutely critical to all of us.
