Palliative Care Unit
Anas Memorial Palliative home Care is the active total care of patients with incurable diseases. Palliative care responds to physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the patients and their families and extends if necessary to support the family in bereavement. It is patient centred, and not disease-focused.
According to the World Health Organisation, “Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual. Palliative care provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms and offers a support system to help patients live as actively as possible until death. Palliative care also offers support to help the family cope during the patient’s illness and in their own bereavement.
Service to society is the hallmark of this college as, for instance, shown by humanitarian activities of the ANAS MEMORIAL Palliative HOME CARE Unit of this college, which offer diverse forms of social and healthcare service to the poor and the needy in the neighbourhood of the college.
