What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is a medical specialty devoted to caring for the seriously ill by:

  • Providing relief from pain and other physical symptoms
  • Improving quality of life
  • Providing support to the seriously ill and the family and friends who love and care for them
  • Assisting the patient, family and staff with difficult medical decision-making

With palliative care, patients have access to a variety of the best options for managing their specific symptoms. Our specialists meet with patients to discuss their goals for treatment. We consider the illness as well as each individual’s personal values and priorities. Palliative care supplements a patient’s usual medical treatment; patients can receive palliative care at any stage of illness to help manage symptoms of their treatment.
