Palliative Care

Palliative care is a specialized caregiving approach that supports individuals living with a chronic illness. Our compassionate caregivers help individuals with chronic conditions remain at home by creating calming and supportive environments.

Our care team focuses on an individual's physical comfort as well as their emotional, social, and spiritual well-being.

What Is Palliative Care at Home?

In-home palliative care services provide supportive care so that your loved ones can remain in the place they cherish - home.

There are key differences between hospice care and palliative care. Hospice care is provided to individuals with limited life expectancy while palliative care can be provided regardless of a person's life expectancy.

In addition to our home care services, we also offer a dedicated program for end of life care

Palliative Home Care FAQs

What is the Origin of "Palliative Care?"

"Palliative care" is a term that comes from the Latin word palliare, meaning "to cloak." From the beginning, caregivers across the continuum viewed palliative care as a way to reduce suffering and improve a person's quality of life.

What Is the Difference Between Palliative Care and Hospice Care?

The primary difference is the life expectancy of the individual. Hospice care is available to those with a life expectancy of six months or less. Palliative care is available to individuals regardless of life expectancy.

How is Palliative Care Delivered in Home Care?

Our Visiting Angels caregivers are offered non-medical certification in palliative care. Their primary focus is to deliver comfort care and compassion that addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our clients with the overall goal to impact quality of life.  

How Long Can an Individual Use Palliative Care?

There is no limitation period an individual can receive this specialized care service unless indicated from a payer source.
