Here is how we manage palliative care at Artha, a luxury senior care home in Gurgaon, India.

  • Understand the needs of the residents: Each resident is unique, and their needs should be understood to provide individualized care. Identify their preferences, culture, and beliefs to provide care that aligns with their values.
  • Provide holistic care: Palliative care is not just about managing the pain but also addressing other needs, such as emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Care should be tailored to the resident's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
  • Manage symptoms effectively: Pain, fatigue, and other symptoms can significantly impact a resident's quality of life. The use of medication and non-pharmacological interventions can help to manage these symptoms.
  • Communicate effectively: Clear communication is essential to ensure that residents, family members, and caregivers understand the care plan, treatment options, and expected outcomes. Encourage open communication and provide support to the resident and their family.
  • Provide support for families: Palliative care is for residents and their families. Offer emotional support and counselling to family members to help them cope with the challenges of caregiving.
  • Foster a team approach: Palliative care requires a multidisciplinary team approach, including physicians, nurses, social workers, and spiritual care providers. Encourage collaboration, open communication, and shared decision-making to provide the best care possible.
  • Focus on quality of life: Palliative care is about improving the quality of life for residents, not just prolonging life. Encourage residents to participate in activities they enjoy and provide opportunities for social interaction.
  • Ensure continuity of care: Continuity of care is essential to ensure that residents receive consistent care. Develop a care plan that outlines the resident's needs and preferences and ensure that all caregivers know the program.
  • Provide education and training: Provide ongoing education and training to caregivers to ensure they have the knowledge and skills to provide quality palliative care.
  • Emphasize the importance of self-care: Caregivers can experience emotional and physical stress, leading to burnout. Encourage self-care practices such as exercise, meditation, and respite time to prevent burnout and maintain well-being.
