What to Expect From Palliative Care

What Can I Expect From The Palliative Care Team?

Symptom Management

The team provides expertise in treating one or more symptoms, such as pain, fatigue, constipation, weight loss, weakness, shortness of breath or difficulty sleeping, as well as mental or emotional symptoms such as confusion, depression and anxiety.

Supportive Counseling

Palliative care specialists work hard to communicate clearly and compassionately. Our social workers, nurses and chaplains support our physicians in providing counseling services.

Advance Care Planning

Since outcomes of treatment can be unpredictable, we offer assistance to patients and their families when they seek more information about coping with issues surrounding disease progression.

Our goal is to assist in making informed preparations. When appropriate, we offer in-depth knowledge regarding end-of-life resources, and offer assistance with finding and coordinating care with community services.

Strong Support Throughout All Stages of Illness

Whether you are seeking a cure or focusing on improving the quality

and the balance of your life, the Palliative Care Team offers significant physical and emotional support to patients and their families.
