Alignd offers specialised care for anyone with serious cancer, focusing on providing relief from symptoms and stress. This could be by controlling physical pain, helping you to sleep better, or helping you with your emotional, social or spiritual needs. Alignd partners with you, to support you and your family, and help you to live well while you’re managing a serious illness.
Care and support is provided by an expert team.
This kind of care and support is provided by an expert team, which could include doctors, nurses and social workers. These practitioners have extra palliative care training, which means they are skilled in making patients’ illness journeys easier from the moment they are diagnosed, ideally with a focus on getting them back on their feet again. What makes this team special is that they will consider and co-ordinate all aspects of your health, and not just your illness.
We work in partnership with the Association of Palliative Care Practitioners of South Africa (Palprac).
Having access to this kind of care from the start makes such a difference. We fully understand what’s going on, and can feel at ease now.
Alignd patients and families feel more supported.
Patients with serious cancer consistently report finding more comfort and support with a palliative care trained team on their side than without it. With better all-round care, symptom management, and a comprehensive and holistic home-based care plan in place, patients are less likely to require emergency services, hospitalisation and ICU stays. Family members are more supported too. And remember, Alignd can offer you support and care co-ordination from when you’re diagnosed with a serious illness – it’s not just for the last few weeks of life.
You’ll get extra care when you need it most.
Our network of specialists is committed to taking care of each patient’s physical, medical and emotional needs, at the times when they need it most. They work together with your treating oncologist and other involved doctors such as your GP. We can offer specific guidance about treatment choices, help to unlock access to medical funds and assist with the needs and logistics of a home-care set-up.
