The goal of palliative care is quality of life for the dying and their families.

Palliative care is the active holistic care of patients with advanced progressive illness and includes areas other than oncology. Apart from, managing pain and other symptoms, palliative care is aimed at delivering psychological, social, and spiritual support to patients and their family to achieve the best quality of life.

Palliative care is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO)1 as “an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.”

AOH cares. Their professional staff cared for my wife baby and me. They walked with me through her sickness, death, and still check in on me.
