Certified Palliative Care

Palliative Care & In Home Health Care In Charlestown, MA

Visiting Angels Charlestown Certified Palliative Care improves quality of life by focusing on seniors’ physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. This program goes beyond what many people think of when they hear the term palliative care, providing in home health care assistance and comfort regardless of life expectancy.

Many use the terms “palliative care” and “hospice care” interchangeably, but these are traditionally thought of as different types of care.

These terms are similar in many ways. At their core, both focus to relieve discomfort and improve the overall quality of life. Hospice care is needed for those nearing the end of life. While palliative care is for those who need care for their comfort and well-being, regardless of their life status.

Visiting Angels Charlestown Certified Palliative Care is rooted in this traditional model of palliative care. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for every senior through specialized, in home health care services.
