How long does palliative care last?
After your loved one is given a terminal diagnosis, you may ask how long does palliative care last? Unfortunately, this is a difficult question to answer, as the length of time palliative care is needed depends on your loved one’s circumstances. This might include the type and progression of their illness, their treatment plan and goals, and other aspects related to their wellbeing.
The only true answer to this question is, palliative care lasts for as long as it needs to last. At Ashberry, we ensure that quality and dedication never waivers no matter how long the duration.
Our approach to palliative care
We know that when a loved one receives palliative care it can be an incredibly difficult time. Not just for your loved one, but also for yourself and other loved ones.
That’s why we ensure the palliative care we offer is personal and empathetic. Yes, we provide one-on-one care for your loved one, but this also extends to you, so you’re never kept out of the loop. We make sure we listen and adapt our approach based on individual needs. Your loved one’s needs are different, so why shouldn’t the care they receive be that way too?
