Why consider palliative care?

At Pasco Palliative Care, our patients not only have a plan for alleviating pain and symptoms to help live life to the fullest, but also have a voice in their care. During the initial consultation, our staff works closely with the patient and their loved ones in developing a plan of care.

Benefits of Palliative Care

Consider Pasco Palliative CareThere are many benefits of palliative care for both patients and their families. Pasco Palliative Care is here to help patients with:

Pain and symptom control: The palliative care team will identify your sources of pain and discomfort. These may include problems with breathing, fatigue, depression, insomnia, or bowel or bladder. Then the team will provide treatments that can offer relief. These might include medication, along with massage therapy or relaxation techniques.

Communication and coordination: Palliative care teams are extremely good communicators. They put great importance on communication between you, your family and your doctors in order to ensure that your needs are fully met. These include establishing goals for your care, help with decision-making and coordination of care.

Emotional support: Palliative care focuses on the entire person, not just the illness. The team members caring for you will address any social, psychological, emotional or spiritual needs you may have.

Family/caregiver support:Caregivers bear a great deal of stress too, so the palliative care team supports them as well. This focused attention helps ease some of the strain and can help you with your decision making.
