Palliative care is an effective, holistic, multi-disciplinary medical specialty which focuses on easing symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious, chronic illness. It is appropriate at varying stages of illness and can be provided alongside curative treatment. Palliative care is provided in the home by a doctor, nurse, and social worker.
This team coordinates care with other healthcare providers, the patient’s doctors, and specialists to provide an extra layer of support. Our team of skilled professionals celebrate life, bring joy, and serve to heal and nurture patients and families.
WHY PALLIATIVE CARE?
Palliative care provides an extra layer of support to you and your family as you cope with serious illness. This unique type of care is focused on comprehensive symptom management. The palliative care team will work in partnership with your doctor to help with communication and make sure your questions are answered. The palliative care team will also ensure your treatment aligns with your health goals while providing counseling during emotionally difficult times.
Treatment options for life-threatening or chronic illnesses can quickly become overwhelming. Opinions from several medical professionals can add to the stress and confusion. The palliative care team focuses on symptom management, and pain control while working to minimize side effects resulting from treatments or medications.

help you regain a sense of peace and control.
