Palliative care offers benefits to anyone with an advanced, life-threatening illness, regardless of prognosis. It addresses the suffering associated with pain or other symptoms, as well as distress sometimes caused by difficult treatments.
Lifetime Care’s palliative care services are for patients who may not be eligible for Hospice care, or who wish to continue disease-oriented treatments. Through this program, we provide specialized symptom management for those with advanced illnesses where the prognosis is greater than six months.
