The Palliative Care Units, Sanshu Hospital.


Recently, the importance of prevention and care of lymphedema patients has been recognized. To improve edema reduction and skin condition, continued care is necessary. However, everyday care requires time and effort, and patients may neglect the required routine. Therefore, it is necessary for patients to recognize the importance of lymphedema and acquire the knowledge and skills to care for their condition. In the case of patients with dementia, it is important to ensure 1) comfortable care for the patients, 2) flexibility of care according to the physical and mental state of the patients, and 3) education of visiting home care staff.
