At the College of Palliative Medicine, we recognize how distressing and difficult it is for the entire family, when their loved one is living with a life-limiting disease or terminal diagnosis. It is an extremely emotional period for everyone concerned, and it requires a careful, sympathetic, and respectful approach.
In addition to the sensitive care and support offered by our professional caregivers, we also work together with all health experts involved to create a smooth and holistic service that provides peace of mind for everyone.
