Description of Services

Caring Connections Palliative Care is the area's only in-home palliative care program. Palliative care, or “comfort care,” aims to help patients feel better and cope with the stress of living with a serious illness. The goal is to improve the quality of life of both the patient and their family.

The Caring Connections Palliative Care team will provide an in-home assessment, disease-specific education, comprehensive medication review and coordinate with a patient’s doctor to develop a plan of care centered around individualized goals and needs. Palliative care might be a good option for someone with a serious illness, such as CHF, COPD or cancer who has been hospitalized or in the ER within the last 12 months. This medical specialty aims to manage pain and symptoms, decrease visits to the ER, prevent hospitalizations and improve quality of life.

The Caring Connections Palliative Care team can also help patients learn about their healthcare options and document their wishes by assisting with living will and medical power of attorney documents. Patients who receive palliative care may continue to pursue curative treatment.

If this is an EMERGENCY, please call 9-1-1.
