Palliative care is a specialized field of medicine focused on helping people living with a serious illness. This type of care provides relief from symptoms and stress related to an illness or disease.
Providing relief from symptoms and stress.
Our team of palliative care providers work together with a patient’s care network to provide support to improve overall health and wellness. This type of in-patient care is based on the needs of the patient, not on the prognosis. We provide care for patients of any stage, and at any stage of a serious illness. We also provide care along with additional methods of curative treatment.
The benefits of a palliative care provider include:
- Education for the patient and their family to better understand treatment plans
- Improved quality of life
- Emotional support for the patient, and their family
- Better control of pain and symptoms related to illness
- Reduces unnecessary and costly hospital visits
