Palliative Care. Bring Comfort Home.
Finding the right care at the right time is vital for anyone dealing with a life-changing illness. It is the mission of the Palliative Care team at Southwest Medical Associates to provide compassionate, individualized care services to patients and their families.
Palliative Care specializes in providing patients with relief from the pain, symptoms, and stress of a serious illness, no matter the diagnosis. It can be provided at any stage of an illness, alongside curative treatment. It also serves as support for family, working together to address the tough questions and issues that may arise among families, patients, and physicians regarding goals of care. Our Palliative Care team strives to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family through a caring approach that includes:
- Identifying goals of care
- Maximizing benefits to physicians, patients, and families
- Minimizing physical and emotional symptoms
- Allowing for curative and life-prolonging care treatment if desired
