What is Palliative Care?

Palliative ( pal-lee-uh-tiv) care, like hospice care, is focused on pain and symptom management and improving the quality of life. The difference is that palliative care is for patients with a life-limiting illness who have a prognosis of longer than six months to live and may still be seeking aggressive treatment. Palliative care includes access to the entire team of specialists.  They will provide education and services to help you feel your best and reduce hospitalizations.

Palliative Care Admission Criteria

  • Patient has been diagnosed with a terminal or life-limiting illness.
  • Prognosis is greater than six months to live.
  • May still be seeking or receiving aggressive treatment for illness.

    Palliative care may be covered by private insurance or private pay (a sliding fee scale is available if needed).
