Palliative Care

Palliative care focuses on relieving the pain and symptoms of serious illnesses including cancer, heart failure, COPD, ALS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and Parkinson’s disease. Palliative care improves a patient’s quality of life and provides a much needed break for family caregivers.
