Palliative Care

In-Home Palliative Care for Seniors

Our Palliative Care Services were designed to deliver personalized and specific physician-directed orders to clients with both advanced disease processes and those with limited life expectancy. Our specially trained, multi-disciplinary team work directly with your physician to achieve optimal treatment goals focused on relief from symptoms and improving your quality of life. Typically, palliative care services will begin within 24-hours of discharge from the hospital or upon receipt of a physician order. We then monitor each patient’s progress daily, weekly or monthly as needed ensuring quality of life and optimal results are achieved.

Our palliative care team will:

  • Help alleviate symptoms and stress associated with your disease
  • Assist in explaining your diagnosis, treatment, and medications
  • Set realistic goals and treatment plans
  • Advise on any medical decisions you may need help with
  • Support you in coping with your illness
  • Coordinate and communicate often with your doctors and families

The difference between hospice and palliative care

Many people use the terms “hospice” and “palliative care” synonymously. While similar in some regards, hospice and palliative care services are actually different in many respects. The core similarity is that each of these services aim to alleviate symptoms such as pain and discomfort. However, hospice care begins when someone stops receiving treatment for a disease or condition and that person has accepted that they will not be cured.  Palliative care begins earlier – usually at the time of diagnosis. People can receive palliative care while they are going through treatment for a disease.

Our palliative care services include, but are not limited to:

  • Comprehensive assessment and personalized treatment plan
  • Multi-disciplinary team focused on improving quality of life
  • On-going monitoring and treatment of symptoms
  • Reporting early changes to physician and obtaining orders as needed
