About Perak Palliative Care Society

Established since 1995, we are a group of volunteers who have
dedicated part of our time and effort to make palliative care
available to people who need it, irrespective of race or religion.
The society is non-profit and non-governmental.

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.

Our services are provided free but all cost on medication and dressing
and nursing materials will be borne by the patient and his family.  A
variable amount of medical and nursing equipment is available to
assist in coping at home.
