In addition to these services, our caregivers can assist with activities of daily living or other tasks your loved one may need to live a fulfilled life.

Why Palliative Care is Important

Providing palliative care is important regardless of what life stage your loved one is in. Severe and chronic illnesses can be painful and draining to their body and mind. Choosing palliative care to ease the burden their condition is causing them can lead them to live the best life they can for as long as possible.

Who Needs Palliative Care?

Many people confuse palliative care for hospice. While similar, the most significant difference between the two is that your loved one can use palliative care for years while hospice is end-of-life care. 

Anyone with serious illnesses can receive palliative care, regardless of their life expectancy. The most common reasons people need palliative care are:

  • Cancer
  • Chronic heart failure (CHF)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Dementia 
  • Parkinsons 
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
