Minute Nurse-Hospice and palliative care

Aging and disease, unfortunately, none of us can avoid, but what we can do in those days is to make it as much easier for the loved one's last days.

This is why there is Hospice and palliative care for patients.

Hospice is an interdisciplinary care system that provides palliative care services for patients of all ages, if their survival is six months or less. It involves a holistic approach to a person with the goal of satisfying all physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
In most cases hospice care is actually synonymous with palliative care.

Palliative care involves active complete care for patients whose disease no longer responds to the treatment process. It is primarily an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families, helping them cope with problems related to the disease.

Palliative care, in fact, is based on the patient's needs, not just the prognosis of the disease. Thanks to this comprehensive approach, a team of doctors and caregivers will help the patient gain strength and enable him to function normally.

This type of patient care is a treatment, more precisely a series of specially adapted treatments that remove and alleviate the discomfort, symptoms and stress that a severe disease itself brings to the patient (pain, fatigue, nausea, loss of appetite, malaise, depression, insomnia, anxiety, vomiting, problems with stool, etc.). It also alleviates the negative effects that invasive therapies and radical surgical interventions can cause in patients.

The care of palliative patients at home is performed by professional private nurses and caregivers with many years of experience, working days and weekends, in the terms that best suit the patient and his or her loved ones.
