Palliative Care - Family offering Palliative Care for Relative Palliative Care alleviates suffering and offers care for those who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and those who are at the end of life. It manages pain and symptoms, and offers psychosocial, spiritual and physical support for those who are ill and their caregivers.

God calls us to care for the vulnerable, including those who are ill or near the end of life. The EFC supports palliative care as a compassionate response that supports and cares for those who are suffering or terminally ill.

All human life is precious. Life is a gift from God for us to respect and protect through all its stages. Each person’s life has worth, regardless of their age or ability, because they are made in the image of God and loved by Him.
