Palliative care is an approach to healthcare that focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness.
This type of care is provided by a team of doctors, nurse practitioners, social workers, chaplains, and other specialists who work together with your primary care provider. Your compassionate interdisciplinary team will provide the needed care to help relieve your physical, emotional, and spiritual symptoms. They will walk with you on your healthcare journey as your disease progresses to help you and your family maintain the best possible quality of life.
Palliative care focuses on providing relief from symptoms like pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, and difficulty sleeping. Our palliative care providers also offer emotional and spiritual support to help our patients and their families cope with the diagnosis and treatment process.
