Palliative Care at Your Home

Palliative care refers to patient and family centered care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing and treating suffering. The program is designed to provide additional support to the patient and patient's family while managing their changing needs and minimizing hospitalization. Patients with cancer, cardiac disease, pulmonary disease, kidney failure, Alzheimer's disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis find palliative care especially beneficial.
