At the Palliative Care Center, we provide support and treatment for patients in Uusimaa suffering from cancer or other chronic illnesses that impair their quality of life. They may include motor neuron disease ALS, cardiac, renal or hepatic insufficiency, or chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or pulmonary fibrosis.

We offer symptom-alleviating treatment and support in early phases of illnesses, for example, alongside treatment for cancer or ALS and as the illness progresses and when transferring to palliative care. 

Palliative or symptomatic care seeks to alleviate patients’ physical, psychosocial and mental suffering, to sustain the quality of life of patients and their families, and to maintain patients’ functional capacity.
