For patients who have serious illnesses, life-limiting conditions or chronic diseases, sometimes the pain can get to be too much. That’s why ProMedica offers palliative care.
The goal of palliative care is to offer relief and improve the quality of life of those who are suffering. It’s different than hospice care in that the goal is to help patients find the physical, emotional and spiritual strength to carry on with normal activities. To help patients live as comfortably as possible, palliative care helps manage symptoms like pain, fatigue, nausea, anxiety, and more.
Palliative care not only helps the patient, but caregivers as well. Our palliative care experts can help all involved better understand the particular medical condition, connect with resources, help analyze different healthcare options, and more.
Palliative care is offered at two ProMedica facilities and our team of experts include physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual guides, home health care aides, pharmacists, and therapists.
