Palliative Care

Palliative Care helps fill the gaps left in traditional medicine by offering holistic treatment of symptoms for some of the most vulnerable people in your community. A typical palliative care patient has multiple health conditions and lives everyday with difficult symptoms. Many have limited social and financial resources.

What is Palliative Care?

Specialized care for serious illness.

Palliative Care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses or health problems. This type of care helps people of all ages by reliving pain and other symptoms like breathing problems, nausea, depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, exhaustion, loss of appetite or spiritual or emotional concerns.

Team approach to managing your illness.

The team, consisting of specially trained doctors, nurses, social workers and chaplains, takes time to get to know you and your health goals. The team works in collaboration with your current doctors and specialists. The team is interested in learning how your health issues have impacted your quality of life and want to make each day as good as it can be by providing support and symptom management.
