Palliative Care Services

Palliative Care Services at Preferred Hospice Care are designed to provide specialized medical care for people living with serious illnesses. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness, whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Preferred Hospice Care offers a team-based approach to palliative care, which typically includes expert medical care, nursing care, and spiritual support. The team works in concert with the patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support that is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment.

The palliative care services at Preferred Hospice Care are highly individualized. The care team takes the time to understand the patient’s needs, values, and preferences. This approach helps in managing symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, and many others. They also help in navigating the healthcare system, guiding patients and families through complex medical decisions and ensuring they have a voice in their care plan. Emotional, social, and spiritual support is also a key component, where counselors and chaplains provide necessary support to patients and families, helping them cope with the emotional aspects of a serious illness.

Moreover, Preferred Hospice Care strongly emphasizes the importance of communication in palliative care. Regular meetings are held to discuss care plans and make adjustments as needed. This open line of communication ensures that the care provided aligns with the patient’s evolving needs and goals. Education about the illness and prognosis is also a crucial part of their services, helping patients and families make informed decisions about their care. In summary, Preferred Hospice Care’s Palliative Care Services are an integral part of comprehensive medical care, aimed at relieving suffering and improving the quality of life for patients with serious illnesses and their families.
