Palliative care is care provided for people living with, and dying from an eventually fatal condition and for whom the primary goal is quality of life.
Palliative care is the relatively new name for the specialized way of providing supportive care for any person with a life-threatening illness approaching the end of life. It is available for everyone: young and old, those with cancer or any other terminal diagnosis, people of any ethnic or cultural background, wherever they live - in the city or in the country.
