Working with you to improve your quality of life!
Palliative care is a medical specialty — like oncology or cardiology — for seriously ill patients and their families. The word “ palliate” means to relieve or reduce pain and discomfort. The goal of palliative (pal’e-a-tiv) care is to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life of patients with a serious disease when cure is not expected. It focuses on relief of physical, emotional and spiritual distress of the patients as well as support for their families.
The PalliativeCare Center supports those dealing with serious
medical conditions, such as:
• Chronic lung disease (COPD, etc.)
• Chronic heart disease
• Congestive heart failure (CHF)
• Parkinson’s disease
• Advanced frailty, etc.
We come to you! A consult visit may be done in homes, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or other medical facilities to meet your needs. The palliative care practitioner does not replace the regular physicians, rather we work together to help with difficult issues.

• Advance Directives
