Palliative Care

Palliative care helps people with a serious illness feel better; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It focuses on improving quality of life for patients and their families. Care may begin as soon as someone is diagnosed with an illness. Palliative care does not signal that a person is giving up hope for recovery or a cure.

Care includes:

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