We offer comprehensive quality palliative care to adults with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness so they may live fully and comfortably. Our palliative care team works closely with you and your physician to provide skilled management of your pain and other symptoms. Visits are provided in the comfort, privacy and familiarity of your home.
When Palliative Care is Right for You
With a physician’s referral, palliative care can start from the moment you are diagnosed, even if you continue to receive active treatment.
These patient-centered services can be provided from the point of diagnosis of a life-threatening, chronic or life-limiting illness, not just in the last days of life. Palliative care may be a good option if you, or your family member, are not ready for traditional hospice care because you:
- Wish to pursue active treatment such as chemotherapy
- Have an illness whose course is difficult to predict
- May still wish to receive life-saving measures
- Expect to live longer than hospice guidelines suggest
