PeaceHealth Palliative Care provides specialized medical care for people with serious illness. Our care focuses on relieving the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
Palliative care is provided by a specially trained team that works together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and it can be provided along with treatments aimed at curing an illness or condition.
You can get palliative care in the hospital, at an outpatient clinic or in the comfort of your home. Our team will work with you and your family to design a care plan that’s tailored to you. Services may include:
- Symptom and stress management
- Medical decision and treatment goals support
- Care coordination with your other doctors
- Disease and diagnosis education
You don’t need to be an existing PeaceHealth patient to access palliative care services, but you will need a referral from your primary doctor. As part of our mission to provide compassionate care to everyone in our community, we are proud to offer financial assistance options for those in need.
