Palliative Consult Services
Patients with complex, chronic and/or painful illnesses may benefit from a palliative care appointment.
Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses, designed to provide relief from related symptoms and pain. Palliative care can be provided to patients during any stage of illness—no matter the diagnosis—together with curative treatment.
Palliative patients can be seen in the Center for Senior Health by a team of hospice and palliative medicine board certified physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, psychologists, pharmacists and other providers who work with a patient’s own doctors to provide an extra layer of support. This holistic care model focuses on giving patients relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness—whatever the diagnosis—while working to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.
On an outpatient basis, we can assess a patient’s needs and create a palliative care plan that is appropriate for the patient. Contact us at (330) 375-3039 to make an appointment.
