Palliative Care

Comfort and quality of life when you need it most.

Journey Hospice recently expanded its services to provide palliative care to all patients in need. Palliative care is a comprehensive treatment plan to help patients living with a serious, chronic, or life-threatening illness manage their symptoms more comfortably. It is implemented in tandem with a patient’s primary medical treatment to help keep them as comfortable as possible, and improve their quality of life.

Journey Hospice has developed a palliative care team of experts who provide treatment for relief from: pain, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, anxiety, problems with sleep, depression, and a number of other ailments. Palliative care is appropriate for those who have difficulty managing their care resulting in frequent hospital stays. Patients do not have to be in hospice or end-of-life care to receive palliative care services. Patients of all ages are able to receive care whether their medical condition can or cannot be cured.

Providing palliative care to the community and to patients in nursing homes and assisted living communities fulfills Journey Hospice’s mission of providing the best care for each patient and their family. Our palliative care experts can meet each patient’s individual needs at any particular point of their journey, with both a skilled medical, and holistic caring approach, providing the interventions and support needed.
