Palliative Care

Palliative care helps people with a serious illness feel better; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It focuses on improving quality of life at any stage of an illness.

Care includes:

  • Managing complex symptoms to your preferred level
  • Medical support for shortness of breath
  • Help with fatigue, anxiety or sleep problems
  • Managing constipation
  • Managing nausea or loss of appetite
  • Spiritual care and medical social services

Palliative care can begin as soon as someone is diagnosed with an illness. It does not signal that a person is giving up hope for recovery or a cure.
