Why Palliative Care?

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious or terminal illnesses. The support focuses on holistic care including providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress caused by serious illness. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family while reducing the emotional effects of illnesses. Home-based palliative care has proven to increase hospice length of stay by 34% and overall hospice utilization by 53%.
