Palliative Care

Understanding the medical, social and emotional challenges that come with a serious illness.

Palliative Care

Palliative care helps you — and your loved ones — understand the medical, social and emotional challenges that come with a serious illness. Also called Complex Disease Management, we focus on relieving the pain, symptoms and stress related to treating and managing a disease.

Who benefits from palliative care?

A serious illness brings unique challenges to patients and their loved ones alike. Our program helps when you’re first diagnosed or at a later point in a disease’s progression.

You may benefit from complex disease management if you’ve been diagnosed with:

  • Cancer
  • A neurological disease, such as ALS and Parkinson’s disease
  • Kidney or liver failure
  • Lung disease or emphysema
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Dementia
