Helping you manage
symptoms at home.

Palliative care utilizes a care team that works with you, your loved ones and your doctors to help match treatment choices to goals. Unlike hospice care, palliative care can be provided along with curative treatment.

We care where you are.

Palliative Services:

  • Palliative care is based on the needs of the patient, not on the patient’s prognosis. It’s appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness. It can be provided in skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities or at home.
  • The palliative care team oversees medications and other treatments for pain, constipation, shortness of breath and other symptoms. A social worker coordinates care and serves as an advocate on behalf of the patient and the family. A chaplain offers spiritual support and comfort.
  • The palliative care team also helps the family by offering medical information, emotional support and home care assistance.
  • The team assists with communication with other providers and evaluates treatment options
