Palliative Care

It is hard to live with a serious illness. You may feel that your treatment is doing more harm than good, or you may have pain or other disturbing symptoms. This can help you and your loved ones cope with all of these things.

The kind of care you get depends on what you need. Your goals guide your care. It can help reduce pain or treat side effects. Palliative care may help you and your loved ones better understand your illness, talk more openly about your feelings, or decide what treatment you want or do not want. It can also help with communication among your doctors, nurses, and loved ones.

Why Palliative Care?

Palliative care providers are interested in what is bothering you and what is important to you. They want to know how you and your loved ones are doing day-to-day. They understand that your illness affects not just you, but also those you love.

Your care providers will ask questions about how your illness affects your emotions and spirit. Then they will try to make sure that your medical care meets your goals for your body, mind, and spirit. They will also help you make future plans around your health and medical care.

You might see a care provider just once or maybe more often. He or she will work with your other doctors to give you the best care possible.

What to Expect

PC actively involves you and your loved ones. Together you will work with health care providers in your doctor’s office or your home, or in a hospital, nursing home, or hospice. If you are interested in palliative care, talk with your doctor. He or she may be able to manage your palliative care needs or may refer you to someone who is trained in palliative care.
