Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. Palliative Care focuses on relieving distressing symptoms and achieving the best possible quality of life for individuals and families. It can be offered simultaneously with life prolonging curative therapies for individuals living with serious disease.
Adults and children living with illnesses such as cancer, heart or lung disease, kidney failure, and other diseases, with physical symptoms or emotional distress may benefit from Palliative Care.
Care is provided in the hospital, private residence, assisted living, long-term care; anywhere you call home.
You may consider Palliative Care if you or your loved one:
- Suffers from pain or other symptoms due to any serious illness.
- Experiences physical or emotional pain that is NOT under control.
- Needs help understanding your situation and coordinating your care.
The Palliative Care Program is funded through a grant provided by the NORMA ROMAN LONGFELLOW FOUNDATION.
Our services are provided at no cost to the patient.
