CarePartners Palliative Care |

photoThe CarePartners Palliative Care team provides specialized medical care for patients who are living with serious illnesses. Regardless of your diagnosis, level of treatment or age, we can help you find relief from the symptoms, pain and stress associated with having a serious illness.

Improving Quality of Life for Patients and Families

Our doctors, nurses, social workers and chaplains work with your other doctors to provide an extra layer of support throughout your illness, which can mean many things, including:

  • Expert management of pain and symptoms
  • Facilitating communication between health care providers
  • Creating a care plan based on your goals
  • Emotional and spiritual support
  • Coordination of care across settings, in the hospital and the community

Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and can be provided together with curative treatment.
