Palliative Care at Home

Relieving pain and improving quality of life so your loved one can focus on what’s important: getting better.

What is Palliative Care at Home?

Unlike hospice care, our palliative care plans are designed to work in tandem with curative treatments to help alleviate pain, nausea, insomnia and other uncomfortable symptoms of severe illnesses. With in-home palliative care, many patients find they have a greater capacity to understand their condition and a greater tolerance for their treatments, which helps produce better results from curative medication and a better quality of life. As part of your loved one’s team, our healthcare professionals can help integrate, administer and monitor any prescribed palliative care treatments.

Who is Eligible for Palliative Care?

Palliative care is focused on relief of pain and other symptoms of serious illnesses such as: cancer, heart failure, COPD, ALS, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis (MS), diabetes, or Parkinson's disease. Any person of any age, at any stage of illness, is eligible for palliative care. Palliative care is often covered by insurance plans, and is considered just like any other medical service such as oncology.
