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.
