Palliative Care is often recommended for patients who have limited life expectancies due to illness. It is interchangeably referred to as End-of-Life Care or Hospice Care. At this point, the patient or the family members have decided to no longer pursue aggressive rehabilitative treatments but rather they choose to focus on the patient’s comfort as the disease takes its course.
With Palliative Care, our compassionate caregivers take time to listen and to understand what the patient is going through. We offer Palliative Care in the form of:
- Coordination of Care
- Pain Management
- Medical Social Services
- Volunteer Services
- Respite Care
- Spiritual Support
- Nutritional Counseling
- Grief Counseling Services for family members
During this very difficult time in your family’s life, trust that you’ll find support from our team. If you have any questions at all about hospice care or in-home palliative care, please call Independent Health Solutions at 605-352-4663.
