Palliative care goes beyond end-of-life care
Unlike end-of-life or hospice care, which takes place after someone has stopped curative treatment, palliative care can improve the quality of life of those with life-threatening conditions, whether or not a cure is available. For example, someone with cancer at a curable stage could be undergoing chemotherapy and receiving palliative care at the same time to manage the symptoms and side effects of both the condition and treatment, such as pain and nausea.
Palliative care involves caring for the body, mind, and spirit of an individual, which can be a lot for an untrained family caregiver to undertake. In fact, a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, and counsellors usually work together to deliver holistic palliative care to individuals. Learn all you need to know about palliative care here in Malaysia.
On top of caring for their loved ones, family caregivers will also need to keep their emotions in check to avoid affecting the ones they care for, which can make caregiving both physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting.

Improving quality of life through home palliative care
Having a professional caregiver or nurse with the right experience can help you better understand what to expect and guide you along your care journey.
A caregiver or nurse trained and experienced in palliative care manages the pain and symptoms caused by your loved one’s condition and/or the treatment they are undergoing. Palliative-trained professionals will also provide mental and emotional support and fulfil the goals and desire of your loved one to the best of their ability. Through improving holistic well-being, quality palliative and hospice care can empower individuals to find purpose and live life to the fullest.
Besides caring for your loved one, having someone around who understands your loved one’s conditions and care needs as well as how tough caregiving is, can be reassuring to the caregiver.

Top questions about Palliative Care
Are palliative, hospice and end-of-life care the same?
While palliative, hospice and end-of-life care provides comfort and aims to improve the quality of life of those battling life-threatening illnesses, they are not exactly the same.
Hospice care, also known as end-of-life care, happens when the goal is no longer to treat and recover from the condition but to improve quality of life and live life to the fullest for their remaining days.
Palliative care encompasses end-of-life or hospice care but is not only for people who are terminally ill. A person can be undergoing treatment to cure their condition while getting palliative care at the same time, to cope with the symptoms of the illness or treatment.
Does palliative care mean death?
Many Malaysians have the misconception that palliative care only occurs at end-of-life. However, palliative care can actually be provided regardless of age, stage of illness, and whether the person is receiving medical treatment. A person can get palliative care while receiving treatment to cure them of the illness, to cope with the symptoms of the condition and side effects of treatment.

What our customers say
The team has been sublime to work with albeit having to temporarily halt engaging them for care services due to the pandemic situation now in Malaysia. All teething issues in the initial phase of engagement were swiftly addressed and satisfactorily so. Special shoutout to Shirley from Homage who has been responding promptly to all my queries and requests (and went far and beyond my expectations with her actions in all counts).
My father had a fall recently and sustained a hip fracture. Living overseas and not being able to travel back home to assist with recovery was very worrying. A friend recommended Homage to help with his nursing care. They are prompt in replying to messages. The care provided was excellent and highly professional. We have been very pleased with the service. There are times when we had to change the appointment time and they obliged and looked into our needs.
Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.
My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.
I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.
Homage has helped us a lot in assisting the recovery of our beloved father. They provide us with a comprehensive explanation regarding the physiotherapy program. The therapist they sent is highly qualified, courteous, passionate, and gave outstanding service. And above all, the charges are fair and affordable.
Thank you Homage for your assistance after my mom was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever. Mom regained her confidence to take her first shower after discharge with the help of Homage's caregiver, something my domestic helper will not be able to do. Also to guide my domestic helper to handle her in a more hygienic way. My maid learned the proper method and able to give better care to mom now. Highly recommend it to people who looking for professional care services to manage family members who need help.
It's really hassle-free when u can have the COVID-19 swab test without leaving ur home. The response is really fast, the app is efficient. Thank you for your services.
I want to thank Homage for their excellent service especially Ms. Ginger for her brilliant communication and customer service and for making the necessary arrangements. She does a good follow-up before and after the physio, also accurate feed-back. We appreciate Ms. Shu for her excellent physio service which made my mother gain confidence that she can walk again. Ms. Shu is very patient, hard-working, and committed to seeing my mum will be completely restored and healed. Thank you.
