Does Palliative Care Include Bathing?

Yes, palliative care may include assistance with bathing and other activities of daily living (ADLs), depending on the patient’s needs and preferences. Palliative care is a holistic approach to care that focuses on the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient and their family. As such, palliative care teams may provide various services, including bathing, dressing, grooming, and other ADLs, medication management, pain and symptom management, emotional and spiritual support, and advanced care planning. The specific services provided will depend on the patient’s individual needs and preferences, as well as the policies and resources of the palliative care team.
