Palliative care alleviates stress and fatigue from serious long-term diseases and health conditions – during any stage. It focuses on enriching and improving the quality of life for individuals and families regardless of life expectancy.
It is a powerful type of holistic care that provides comfort for individuals who are suffering from symptoms of serious illnesses such as:
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

The Difference Between Palliative and Hospice Care
Unlike traditional hospice, palliative care is not only used for those nearing the end of life but can be a successful long-term solution to a loved one’s chronic illness or disease. We realize that some of these diseases can cause very painful long-term battles for individuals, so we want to be there for your loved ones every step of the way.
Palliative care is for individuals who need:
- Assistance for aging or chronic care concern
- Physical, emotional, spiritual, and social support
- Personal home care
