What Palliative Care Services are Available in Wigan?
Traditionally, when needing palliative care, people have presumed that they needed to go into residential care or a hospice environment to receive their treatments, however more and more people in the Wigan area are discovering that remaining in the home they love to receive palliative care is so much more beneficial. Palliative care is the path of treatments you undertake when living with a life-limiting disease or illness, meaning that you can be on your palliative pathway for some years before your condition deteriorates. While treatments aren’t considered a cure, they are focussed on allowing you to live your best quality of life for as long as possible after a diagnosis.
