Chronic illnesses are marked by fluctuations and variations over time. Individuals with chronic illness experience pain and other symptoms that are not always adequately managed. Their caregivers often must deal with enormous burden as the illness progresses. Palliative care can serve as an intervention to manage chronic illness, not just at the end of life but also in the early phases of illness. The Primary treatment needs the urgent attention and Secondary outcomes will include health-related quality of life, care giver burden, quality of care and cost-effectiveness of interventions.
Palliative care is a very important to older person at the end of their life that’s the good death. The survey gives result that the rural area has less palliative care facility compare to the urban area. The palliative care has to improve in the rural area also and the people have to understand the importance of palliative care and the required information has to give for the rural person about the disease so that they can take palliative care. Services less available in rural area that may contribute to the lower proportion of home deaths in rural areas include the lower availability of home-based services, the lack of 24-hour care, and delays in service provision.
Aged care refers to the additional care required for an older person needing regular health professional input either in the aged care home. Palliative care is according to WHO Organization an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threating illness, through the prevention. It is important that older people are supported to receive high quality palliative care in the setting of their choice, whether that be in their own home or in a residential aged care facility. Availability of high quality palliative care in aged care facilities and people’s own homes will enable older to have a good death.
Greiatics is a specialty that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist. Geriatrics differs from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. The aged body is different physiologically. from the younger adult body, and during old age, the decline of various organ systems becomes manifest. Previous health issues and lifestyle choices produce a different constellation of diseases and symptoms in different people.
Occupational threapy practitioners play an important role on palliative and hospice care teams by identifying life roles and activities (“occupations”) that are meaningful to patients and addressing barriers to performing these activities. Unlike other health care providers, they consider both the physical and psychosocial/ behavioural health needs of the patient, focusing on what is most important to him or her to accomplish, the available resources and support systems, and the environments in which the patients want and can participate.
