Self-care and care skills of carers

The palliative care team will follow up on patients’ condition and assess their self-care and cognitive functions accordingly. The goal is to maximize patients’ ability to cope with everyday life activities, such as in self-care, use of assistive devices and modification of the home environment. Besides, burden and stress of carers in caring for the patient will also be our focus. We will provide appropriate education and training to enhance carers’ knowledge and skills in the related areas, so as to ease the caring and relieve the stress of carers. As a result, the quality of life of patients and carers can be improved.
