Clare Holland House
Palliative Care focuses on supporting patients who have one or more chronic conditions, with intervention aimed at assisting those people to live complete and comfortable lives through symptom management and suitable treatment of their condition(s) as they progress to the need for end of life care.
The goal is to help patients achieve dignity, comfort and maximise the quality of life for the patient, family and loved ones.
