Palliative Care

When faced with a serious illness, you may need a special kind of care. ALS, AIDS, cancer can take a toll on your body and mind. Palliative care can help. We step in with a focus on pain relief that makes your daily life more liveable.

How Palliative Care Differs From Hospice

  • Palliative care serves anyone at any age suffering from pain and other extreme symptoms caused by severe disease or intense treatments, like chemotherapy. 
  • Hospice care offers palliative services to people in the last six months of their lives.

Relief & Care for Your Whole Person

Our team includes doctors, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, music therapists, chaplains, massage therapists and psychologists.

Everything we do focuses on your wellness as a whole person, from logistics to symptom management. 

Emotional support: We provide emotional support as you face issues related to a serious illness. 

Holistic care: We find complementary, alternative therapies for you, like acupuncture and massage. 

Planning: We help with discharge planning, connecting you to community resources.
