Palliative care is the active total care of patients with advanced illness. The focus is on quality of life and integrating the physical, psychological, spiritual, and social aspects of care.
Nightingale palliative care Nurses aim to enhance physical well-being through effective symptom control and management: pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation, sleeplessness. Our Nurses help to enhance psychological well being through management of anxiety, depression, fear, denial, and hopelessness, their care ensures that happiness, enjoyment, and leisure are promoted. Spiritual well-being is also assisted through minimisation of suffering, focusing instead on religious beliefs, hope and meaning.
