Community Based Palliative Care
Community Based Palliative Care is a home-based program that provides palliative care for relief from the pain, symptoms, and stress of serious illness. Community-based Palliative Care is a special kind of medical care for seriously ill patients, focused on relieving physical symptoms and stress of their illness. Palliative care is patient-and family-centered care that helps you carry on your daily life, improve your ability to go through medical treatment, and enjoy the best possible quality of life.
Our team consists of Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Social Workers, and a Registered nurse.
We can help you:
- Discuss feelings related to a new diagnosis or changes in the course of your illness
- Manage your pain or other symptoms so you can be as comfortable, independent and safe as possible
- Find help with day-to-day needs and the emotional and spiritual support you want
- Identify what’s most important to you and what kind of information you need to make decisions that make sense for your life
- Plan for expected changes as your illness progresses
- Enjoy peace of mind and the important people in your life
