The primary goal for Palliative Care is to control pain, manage symptoms and side-effects for aggressive treatments and galvanize family support for housebound patients with serious or advanced stages of illness.

In many cases, palliative care is administered before hospice is introduced. The palliative team generally includes patient, physician, social worker, nurse and patient advocate. Our main goal is to keep the patient in the comfort of their own home or place of residence.
