Palliative Care and Advanced Illness Management (AIM) is specialized medical care focused on relief of pain, symptoms and stress due to serious illness, whatever the diagnosis. Palliative Care helps patients and families through all stages of illness. It is best introduced early in the care process and can be provided at the same time as curative treatments. Our Palliative Care Team helps people live more comfortably. By providing physical, emotional and spiritual support, we help patients and their families live the best possible quality of life.
Mercyhealth at home coordinates with these programs upon referral and is available to provide intermittent skilled services in conjunction with your physician and palliative team.
