In the final stages of a terminal illness, care priorities shift. Instead of ongoing curative measures, the focus often changes to palliative care for the relief of pain, symptoms and emotional stress. Ensuring a loved one’s final months, weeks or days are as good as they can be requires more than just a series of care choices. Anticipating the demands of end-of-life caregiving can help ease the journey from care and grief towards acceptance and healing.
