Palliative Care

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.


An example of our care is precision pain management. Because people deal with pain differently, we listen to patients, family members and doctors to manage pain at the right level and the right time.


Care is coordinated with your doctor and includes:


  • Managing symptoms to your preferred level
  • Medical support for shortness of breath
  • Help with fatigue and sleep problems
  • Managing nausea, loss of appetite or constipation
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • 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.
