Focused on a better quality of life
Living with a chronic, life-limiting illness can be emotionally and physically draining. Early implementation of palliative care can make a difference in the quality of life. Palliative care may be used in addition to curative care of an illness. Enrollment in hospice is not a requirement for palliative care. Our goal is to help each person achieve the best possible quality of life.
Palliative care - what is it?
Palliative care is the management of symptoms of a life-limiting illness to relieve suffering and increase quality of life. In order to serve the growing number of patients with chronic debilitating diseases and life-threatening illnesses, we offer palliative care physician visits to provide:
- Relief from symptoms associated with serious illness such as pain, nausea, shortness of breath, insomnia, etc.
- Assistance with understanding difficult treatment choices
- Collaboration with your provider/physician to provide consistent health care where you live.
- A better understanding of your health care options
