Palliative Care Program
The Care You Need with a Little Extra TLC
Our Palliative Care Program is specialized medical care focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family by working with the patient’s primary care physician to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a life-limiting illness and, unlike hospice care, can be provided along with aggressive treatment.
We offer many services to assist you and your family in managing your care.
Our physicians are here to help with palliative care needs and symptoms. Palliative Care specialists are offered through the home program. They will work with you to create a plan of care focused on meeting the challenges of serious illnesses.
