For those who are facing the challenges of chronic illness, palliative care offers support by assisting individuals identify their goals for care with a focus on maintaining quality of life, comfort and independence. Our medical social workers can help individuals understand their disease trajectory, identify needed resources and serve families in planning for the future.

Palliative care can be combined with curative treatment and is appropriate for anyone whose challenges include living with a life-limiting condition. Our palliative care team works with the patient’s primary care physician to ensure that palliative and curative treatments are in harmony with each other to maximize both the quality and length of life.
