How do I know if Pasco Palliative Care is right for me?
Pasco Palliative Care may be right for you if you are experiencing pain, stress and other symptoms due to a serious illness. Serious illnesses include but are not limited to: cancer, cardiac disease, respiratory disease, kidney failure, Alzheimer’s, AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis. Pasco Palliative Care is appropriate at any stage of a serious illness and you can get it along with treatment meant to cure you.
Most insurance plans cover all or part of the palliative care treatment you receive, just as with other hospital and medical services. This is also true of Medicare and Medicaid. If costs concern you, a social worker or financial consultant from the palliative care team can help you with payment options.
The Pasco Palliative Care team provides an extra layer of support and works in partnership with your primary doctor. Your primary doctor will continue to direct your care and play an active role in your treatment.
Absolutely. Your treatment choices are up to you. You can get palliative care at the same time as treatment meant to cure you.
Everyone involved! Patients as well as family caregivers are the special focus of palliative care. Your doctors and nurses benefit too, because they know they are meeting your needs by providing care and treatment that reduces your suffering and improves your quality of life.
Palliative care can be provided in a number of places. These include hospitals, outpatient clinics, long-term-care facilities or home.
Pasco Palliative Care is non-hospice care for anyone with a serious illness. You can have it at any age and any stage of an illness, and you can have it along with curative treatment. It is not dependent on prognosis.
Hospice provides care for terminally ill patients who may have only months to live.
