Palliative care is about improving quality of life for you or your loved one.
No matter what age. No matter what type of serious illness.
One in four Americans is struggling with some type of chronic disease. This figure increases to three in four Americans if they are age 65 or older.
This means that you or someone you love may benefit from palliative care.
Palliative care is about improving the quality of life for patients and their families, and it’s available immediately after diagnosis of a serious condition. It’s not necessary to leave their current physician in order to receive palliative care.
Our program provides an extra layer of quality, compassionate care and support for those who are facing serious illnesses. It’s available from the time of diagnosis while treatment is ongoing. Patients can receive palliative care in their homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals and skilled nursing facilities.
Palliative care nurse practitioners visit patients once (sometimes twice) a month to access care needs and provide pain and symptom management.
We’ve served patients who have diseases such as:
- Heart disease
- Renal disease
What is palliative care?
Palliative care provides comfort and pain management for individuals of any age. The goals of palliative care are to:
- Ease pain and symptoms.
- Reduce hospitalizations and for those hospitalized, a shorter stay.
- Help, support and improve coordination of care.
- Assist with discussions about goals of care.
- Provide information and support on advance care planning.
Our expert palliative care providers work closely with your existing physicians to control disease symptoms such as:
- Breathing difficulties
