Coping with Serious Illness in Adults and Children
When someone is seriously ill, it affects more than just their body. The illness can have an impact on all aspects of their life and the lives of their family members. Palliative care helps address physical, emotional, social and spiritual issues that often accompany illness.
Both adults and children experience serious illness. However, their needs are very different when they’re ill. For both adults and children, palliative care can begin at any stage of an illness.
