Am I Eligible For Palliative Care?

Patients with life-limiting diseases are eligible for palliative care, even when seeking curative treatments. Their prognosis does not need to be terminal.

What Is The Difference Between Palliative Care And Hospice?

The primary difference between Palliative Care and Hospice is patients receiving Palliative Care continue to have curative treatments for their illness. Patients receiving Hospice Care do not receive these same curative measures.

A bereavement program is also available to help grieving families cope with the death of a loved one.
