Palliative Care

What exactly is Palliative Care? It's supportive care for people with serious illnesses. This type of care is focused on providing patients with releif from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness-whatever the diagnosis. Palliative Care can follow the patient where ever they are; home or facility. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work with a patient's other doctors to provide an extra layer of support.

Focus of Palliative Care

Quality of life is the focus. Ideally, patients should be in hospice for end-of-life care. But patients with serious illness are facing months and years of disease and its treatment, not days and weeks, and they and their caregivers need support in coping with the enormous physical and emotional stress. Our program provides in-home visits each month for patients with a progressive chronic illness.

With over 20 years experience in palliative care management, contacting our care management team could be the best move you make today.
