Palliative Care

The Art of Living Well with a Serious Illness

Palliative care is appropriate at any age for any serious illness and can be provided alongside any curative treatments. The services provided by our team focus on enhancing our patients quality of life by providing comfort and support to our patients and their family members.

Who Can Benefit from Palliative Care?

  • Patients with any serious illness (cancer, cardiac disease, kidney failure, Alzhiemer’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and respiratory disease)
  • Patients with uncontrolled physical symptoms (cancer related pain, shortness of breath, nausea, loss of appetite, and fatigue)
  • Patients and families who wish to discuss advance care planning (advance care directive and/or POLST forms)

Our team is comprised of doctors, a nurse practitioner, an advance care pharmacist, and a dietician. We do not replace your other doctors; our goal is to work in partnership with them to provide an extra layer of support.

Palliative care is covered by most insurances.
