What does palliative care address?

Palliative care addresses suffering in all its forms. This includes physical symptoms, such as pain, shortness of breath, nausea, mobility concerns, etc. It also addresses anxiety and depression, or other troubling emotions that arise. Palliative care can also help ensure patients have access to resources, such as insurance they are eligible to receive, and support with preparing advance directives. If desired, palliative care can also offer non-denominational spiritual support. The goal of all services is for patients to maintain a good quality of life.
