Palliative care is designed to help patients and their families deal with the numerous challenges brought on by serious illness. It can be helpful to patients who are having a difficult time managing their symptoms and can help improve their quality of life. Unity Hospital’s Palliative Care Services are focused on caring for the whole patient: we help to ease the pain and stress of the patient’s body, mind, and spirit.
Palliative care can be delivered at any stage of an illness and alongside conventional treatments that are meant to cure the patient. Palliative care is appropriate for patients of any age and at any point during an illness— whatever the diagnosis or prognosis may be. Many of our patients are affected by advanced diseases, from cancer and heart disease to lung and kidney disease to neurological illnesses.
