What is Palliative Care?

Palliative means to relieve or ease. Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. This type of care is focused on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness—whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists who work with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and can be provided together with curative treatment.

Pain & Symptom Management

Our team works with the patient’s attending physician and nurses to treat pain effectively and compassionately, with both traditional and complementary pain management approaches. We provide treatment recommendations for additional symptoms like nausea, restlessness, and anxiety.
