Additional Information

Palliative care can be used in conjunction with any curative care you or your loved one may be receiving. The goal of this supportive type of care is to have you maintain the best quality of life during and after any medical treatments you undergo to eradicate the disease. What that entails will vary depending on your needs, but it will always include addressing you and your family’s physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs.
