When faced with cancer or advanced disease, patients have different goals for their care, which can change over time. Some patients want to continue trying aggressive treatments. Others decide to choose different forms of care, such as controlling the symptoms of the disease, pain relief, breathing comfort and difficulty sleeping among other conditions.
Care decisions are very personal and it is natural to want to do everything you can. But these feelings must be weighed against the risks and benefits of available treatments, as well as the feelings about life and death themselves. All necessary questions should be asked. If you decide not to receive active treatment, you can continue to receive palliative and comforting care.
MédicoEnTuCasa helps you with these important moments with your family member at home. A palliative care internist will guide the family in this regard.
