Palliative Care

Palliative Care optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and treating suffering throughout chronic and life-threatening illness. It addresses the resident’s physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.

Palliative Care Is:

  • An approach to resident care that is integrated with disease-modifying therapies
  • Life-affirming care that regards dying as a normal process
  • Not intended to hasten or postpone death
  • A support system to help families cope during the resident’s illness and their own bereavement
  • A program designed to enhance the quality of a resident’s life, and therefore may also positively influence the course of illness
