Moving from ultimate hope of cure to acceptance of illness can be very difficult. Acceptance can bring a healing dimension to your life. Making the time to take control over your life involves working out issues with family and friends, putting financial affairs in order, and planning with others how you can best manager your health problems and other important matters. Palliative Care aims to affirm live and regards dying as a normal process.
