Palliative Care Services

Focused on Your Mind, Body, and Soul

For anyone facing a potentially long-term or life-threatening condition, our comprehensive Palliative Care Program is here for you, offering dedicated services to help relieve pain, stress, and other concerns you and your family might have.

Importantly, Palliative Care is not the same as hospice care. Patients can enter our Palliative Program at any stage of their illness—starting from their diagnosis—and many will continue receiving aggressive medical treatment (such as chemotherapy, radiation, etc.) throughout the process. The goal of our Palliative Care team is to help you better understand your condition and how to manage it both physically and mentally. This can include a blend of pharmacology, relaxation techniques, and spiritual guidance, along with assistance in handling legal and medical forms and reducing your financial burden.

Our program brings together experienced nurses, social workers, chaplains, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and a physician advisor. Your personal case manager can also work to coordinate your care between home health, hospice, or extended care facilities, allowing us to focus on you as a whole individual with a mind, body, and soul.
