BODY OF THE ESSAYPalliative care is considered as a specialised form of care that is being provided to thepeople dealing with some serious issues or illness (Arnold, Cardoso and Subject, 2017). So, bymeans of palliative care, the one dealing from the issue can get some sort of relief from thesymptoms of the factors leading to the illness.

These people alreadyexperience sadness and depression because of no reason. So, all they need is proper love, careand support. As the people with Palliative symptoms experience enormous number of symptoms,so I have decided some simple ways to deal with them. Every single day, I sit with them andhave a conversation .
