The Palliative Care Program at St. Patrick’s Home embraces the concept of treating each resident’s pain from the moment he/she is admitted. It assures an identified, coordinated, and comprehensive approach to providing care. On entering the facilities served by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, all residents are placed on a Palliative Care program. This program provides an assessment of each resident’s five areas of pain: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and familial.
Palliative Care seeks to provide relief from the five domains of pain that all persons experience when faced with a debilitating diagnosis. Palliative Care is not reserved for those who are imminently dying. Palliative Care allows each resident to receive the appropriate treatment that brings him/her comfort and the best possible care.
Palliative Care can be combined with curative care or with less aggressive care. Palliative care is not the same as Hospice Care or End of Life Care, which is reserved for those who are imminently dying.
