What is Palliative Care ?
The goal of palliative care is for an individual to receive symptom (pain, nausea, anxiety, depression) management when dealing with a serious illness. The care team will assist with comfort care and the patients can still be pursuing curative treatment for their illness if they choose.
Visit the Palliative Care page for more info.
What type of counseling support do you offer ?
We offer many support groups, three to four eight-week bereavement groups a year, and individual counseling. We offer support to our patient’s families and community members. We follow a hospice patient’s family for 13 months following a death.
