When you or your loved one is coping with a serious, medical illness, it can be an overwhelming experience… palliative care services can help.
In the midst of receiving treatments, suffering difficult symptoms, learning about the illness, and coordinating care, it is common for patients to feel as if their entire lives are taken over by the medical condition. Family members and other caregivers are impacted by increased demands for their time and are often overwhelmed with concern for their loved one.
Palliative care provides support for patients and families during this difficult time. By focusing on relief from the symptoms and stresses of a serious illness, no matter the diagnosis, palliative care services support patients of any age and at any stage of illness. It’s important to know that palliative care can be provided along with treatment aimed to cure.
