Palliative Care Counseling and Support Services

Palliative Care is a supportive service for people going through serious or life limiting illness. It is support at any time from the initial diagnosis throughout the course of an illness.  It affirms life and views death as a normal process.  It offers support to help people live their lives as long as possible with hope, satisfaction and dignity.   Palliative Care is a holistic approach to treating pain and symptoms related to the disease process.   It integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of care.  Its foundation lies in communication and understanding of the person and family.  

Quality of life means something different to each person.  Being able to define what this means to you and your loved one, make goals and decisions based on what is important to you is the essence of Palliative Care. Palliative Care is about your providers understanding who you are and what’s important to you.

Palliative Care Counseling can be an essential part of your support network. Palliative Care counseling provides emotional support, values clarification, patient advocacy, education and resource referrals for clients and families navigating the course of treatment.
