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