The Palliative Care Program provides pain and symptom management recommendations in addition to the standard care already provided by the patient's physicians. 

There are many complexities associated with comfort care.  To help patients and their families during a time of illness, Hospice Care offers palliative care services by a Registered Nurse to help ease the physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual pain associated with many types of chronic, acute and progressive illnesses. 

What Palliative Care Provides for Patients and Families:

  • Enhanced comfort care.
  • Open and thoughtful discussion with patients and family members reguarding treatment options.
  • Expert attention to pain and symptom management; psychological, emotional and spiritual support.
  • Patient and family conferences with Palliative Care Team members, physicians, and health care providers.
  • A staff dedicated to patient and family comfort and well-being.
  • Increased support for patients and families.
