Patients can also seek palliative care while receiving medical help to treat their illness or prolong their life.
Our patients and their families have unique needs,
so we offer unparalleled service to:
Address their medical concerns,
Provide emotional support, and
Offer spiritual counseling.
Overall, we are committed to a patient experience that is fueled by integrity and respect.
Palliative Care is About You
Receiving Quality Care
Our palliative care plan begins with an assessment of your diagnosis. Our team then recommends care that is appropriate in meeting your treatment goals. Our professional medical team monitors and treats your symptoms and side effects, with a goal of maintaining your quality of life.
Your Needs. Your Treatment. Your Choice.
Who is Eligible for Hospice Benefits?Hospice is for people who have a life-limiting illness, such as cancer or advanced heart, lung or kidney disease. Hospice is also for life-limiting conditions, including neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and ALS (Lou Gherig’s disease). Hospice comfort care measures are especially beneficial to minimize symptoms that may be affecting quality of life, such as pain, shortness of breath, nausea, constipation, depression, anxiety or insomnia.
