Perak Palliative Care Society is a non-profit and non-governmental society. Initiated by a group of volunteers who dedicated part of their time and effort to make palliative care available to people who need it, irrespective of race or religion.
Palliative Care is the comprehensive care provided by a multidisciplinary team for those with a life-threatening illness where cure is no longer possible and comfort and symptom control are the main aims. Palliative care encompasses the whole self, caring for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their families. It provides relief from pain, nausea, shortness of breath, and loss of appetite. The goal is to prevent and relieve these symptoms so that the patient can get on with daily life.
