Sometimes patients have physical symptoms that are difficult to control while undergoing treatment for advanced or chronic illness. Palliative care provides expert medical care, symptom management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient's and their family's needs and wishes.
Palliative care provides an integrated team (nursing, emotional, and spiritual) to enhance treatments the patient may still be receiving. A nurse practitioner and social worker, both certified in palliative care, work with the patient's physician and caregivers, using the latest methods of pain and symptom management, to enable the patient to live as fully and comfortably as possible.
Our team members are highly skilled in speaking with families to evaluate needs during this period of interim care that can be especially stressful and emotional.
Call 888-303-7576 to schedule a meeting, which can be arranged the same day or as immediately as needed.
