Palliative Care

Palliative Care with HopeHealth

Palliative care offers comfort and relief from a serious, progressive illness that may or may not be life-limiting. It is available immediately after diagnosis and can be given alongside curative care.

Our providers focus on controlling symptoms like pain, breathlessness and fatigue. They also help patients and families understand their options in this very stressful time. We provide this service in homes, long-term care facilities and hospitals. Our team develops a personalized care plan based on patient and family goals. This plan can include pain relief medication, care coordination services and emotional support from our social worker.
