What Is Palliative Care
Palliative care focuses on improving the quality of life for those with chronic or advanced illnesses. It provides an extra layer of support to anyone facing a complex diagnosis.
You may benefit from palliative care if you have:
- Heart disease.
- Lung disease, including COPD.
- Advanced kidney disease.
- Other serious illnesses.
We tailor our support to match your goals and values. Palliative care providers can address physical, emotional, spiritual and logistical concerns that make it more difficult to cope with your illness.
We involve your family members, so they can assist with your care as well. We also communicate regularly with your other doctors to better coordinate your care.
