Palliative care is a medical care approach aimed at optimizing quality of life and mitigating suffering among people with serious, complex illness. Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with serious life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain/other symptoms and by addressing other physical, psychological, social, and spiritual problems.
Palliative Care is how medicine was meant to be practiced, with focus on the patient to alleviate their suffering.
Hospice Care is on the spectrum of Palliative Care Services. Hospice is basically the most expensive, best, most intense, everything you can think of doing version of Palliative Care. It includes medications, equipment, supplies, volunteer visits, support from office staff, CNA visits, chaplain visits, social worker visits, nursing visits, nurse practitioner visits, physician calls, physician visits, and much more.
Our focus on quality of life and thinking outside of the box allows us to improve our patient’s condition. We partner with various organizations to improve overall clinical and non-clinical care of our patients.
