Palliative care is a team effort by doctors, medical caregivers, patients and families to bring relief from the pain, symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Our first step in palliative care is listening to you and your doctor to fully understand your goals for care.
Patients can receive palliative care while working with their medical team to manage or cure their illness. Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances include palliative care benefits, if the patient meets criteria.
Contact us at a local location 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We're here to listen and help you find the right care. Our experience can also help you navigate referrals, including Medicare and insurance issues.
Palliative care offers relief from the symptoms of a disorder or the side effects of medical treatment such as:
- Shortness of breath
- Fatigue and sleep problems
- Nausea and loss of appetite
- Anxiety and depression
