Palliative Care

Palliative care focuses on relieving suffering and achieving the best possible quality of life for patients and families. It can be offered simultaneously with life prolonging curative therapies for patients living with serious illness.

Palliative care guides patients and their families as they journey through the changing goals of care and assists in better understanding of treatment options.

Palliative care nurse visits focus on assessment, information, referral, and teaching. They are not direct-care skilled nurse services. Referrals will be made to homecare or hospice if appropriate.

The Palliative Care Program is funded through a grant provided by the Norma Roman Longfellow Foundation.

Services are provided at no cost to the patient.
