Your life is more than your medical problems or your treatment. And yet, when faced with a serious illness, life can become more complicated. Palliative Care services provide an added layer of support to help you manage the challenges that accompany serious illness. Our professional, caring team is here to help so you can focus on what’s most important to you.
Palliative Care team members provide home-based services that focus on relieving your symptoms such as pain, related to a life-limiting chronic illness. When you are admitted to the program, our Palliative Care team partners with your healthcare provider to offer an extra layer of care. We help you experience an enhanced quality of life, increased comfort, reduced emergency room visits, and fewer repeat hospitalizations.
