Palliative Care

Palliative care is an extra layer of relief from the pain, symptoms and stress of a serious illness. It focuses on improving quality of life for patients and their families. The palliative team communicates with your doctor to match support with your medical, practical and spiritual needs.

Starting palliative care does not signal that someone is giving up hope for recovery. Support can begin at any stage of illness, with peeople moving in and out of care as needed.
