Palliative Care for Woodbury Residents

The main goal of the Palliative Home Care Program is to use comfort care to target and reduce a patient’s pain and symptoms that stem from their advanced illness.

Palliative Home Care offers:

  • Nursing care to meet a skilled need for a serious or chronic illness
  • Pain and symptom management
  • Emotional and spiritual support for both patients and families through social workers and clergy
  • Other services like speech, physical and occupational therapy when needed

This type of care can begin at the diagnosis of an advanced illness and works alongside curative measures, focusing on creating comfort through pain and symptom management.

The Palliative Home Care Program helps reduce patients stress while targeting their pain and symptoms by allowing patients the ability to seek out specialized treatments. Healthcare professionals will work together to provide comfort care at any stage of an advanced illness. Those who are homebound, have a special skill, or have symptoms that are difficult to manage benefit greatly from this program.
