To palliate is ‘to make a disease or its symptoms less severe or unpleasant without removing the cause’. Our team provides palliative care for those with a chronic progressive illness including progressive pulmonary disorders, renal disease, chronic heart failure, HIV/AIDS, progressive neurological conditions, and cancer. Care is targeted at supporting a patient’s physical, emotional and psychosocial needs, providing comfort and improving quality of life.
Jasmine’s specially trained nurses and caregivers will visit patients in the comfort of their own homes as regularly as needed, offering several key services that assist patients and their families including symptom management, education, and overall support. Some medical equipment can also be provided to help palliative patients and families safely maintain independence and a familiar pattern of life for as long as possible.
Our clinicians are available via phone 24 hours a day to answer questions and dispatch someone to the bedside if needed. Jasmine can also provide Respite Care of up to 5 days of in-patient care for home-based palliative patients so that family members can take a break from their caregiving duties to recharge, travel, recover from an illness or attend to other matters.
In-patient care for palliative patients can provide a greater degree of support for a short period of time to control pain or manage acute and/or complex symptoms that cannot be effectively managed at home. It can also be a great option for the transition from hospital to home, giving time to make adjustments such as home modifications, building ramps, installing shower bars, etc.
