Palliative care means treatment to relieve symptoms. Palliative care is started when the progression of the disease can no longer be influenced. In palliative care, we alleviate pain and other symptoms and support the best possible quality of life. We also support the client's close relatives and friends.

Usually, our patients are suffering from cancer or an advanced heart, lung or liver disease.

The duration of palliative care is not limited. End-of-life care is the final stage of palliative care.

A doctor's referral is needed to access treatment at the Palliative Outpatient Clinic. We operate at Suursuo Hospital.
