Helping You Achieve a Better Quality of Life
HopeHealth Palliative Care provides relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness, wherever you need care.
Our team of medical professionals can collaborate with your existing doctors and other healthcare providers to ensure your care is well coordinated.
We can control your pain and other symptoms. And we can help you and your family clarify the goals of your care and convey your priorities.
Inpatient Hospital Care
If you or a loved one is hospitalized at one of our partnering hospitals, we can work with your medical team to provide palliative care. Patients receiving palliative care in an inpatient setting may be eligible to have services coordinated by our care transitions team.
If you qualify for home care services, you may be able receive home-based palliative care. This care serves as an extra layer of support to help you manage your illness and remain independent at home.
Home-based palliative care is provided by a specially trained, multi-disciplinary team of nurses, home health aides, care transition coordinators, therapists and social workers from HopeHealth Visiting Nurse, working under the supervision of a physician from HopeHealth Palliative Care.
Long-Term Care Facilities
If you are receiving care in a nursing home or skilled rehabilitation facility, we can work alongside your healthcare team to provide palliative care in that setting.
