Community-Based Palliative Care

At times, a more comprehensive care is needed after a hospital stay for patients receiving treatment for a chronic or serious illness. The primary goal of Palliative Care is to improve quality of life for both you and your family. It is available for everyone—of any age, race, culture, background, or religion. Palliative Care provides family and patient centered support within the home tailored to meet your physician’s Plan of Care. The focus of care for advanced illness is thus moved out of the hospital and into the home.

Palliative Care can be used at any time in your illness, not just for people who are near the end of life. Using Palliative Care does not mean there is no hope, that you have ‘given up’ or that your families don’t care. You can continue to receive curative focused treatment at the same time as receiving Palliative Care. You may be able to use complementary therapies or traditional medicine.

Palliative Care provides a continuum of specialized care choices for: 

  • Chronic Disease
  • Recently diagnosed serious disease
  • Nausea, gastrointestinal, respiratory symptoms
  • Symptoms associated with curative treatment
