Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness.

"Thank you everyone for the patience and attention my sister received.  My family felt very comforted knowing she was in the care of such angels."

– Surviving Family Member

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness. This type of care is focused on providing relief from symptoms and stress of illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.  

 

Unlike hospice, palliative care is appropriate at any stage in a serious illness and it can be provided along with curative treatment.

 

The Palliative care team is comprised of a specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. 

Palliative care teams focus on quality of life. They treat people suffering from the symptoms and stress of serious illnesses such as cancer, congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and many more.
