Palliative care

During a serious illness, palliative care can help you feel better physically, mentally and emotionally. Trust the compassionate palliative care providers at ProHealth Care to help reduce symptoms and focus on quality of life.

What’s palliative care?

Palliative care, also called supportive care, offers help and comfort to people with a serious health condition. Palliative care doesn’t mean you stop treatment. You’ll determine your next steps with help from your doctor while you live the best you can.

Difference between palliative care and hospice

Both hospice and palliative care help improve quality of life for you and provide support for you and your family. Palliative care is for anyone with a serious illness. Hospice care happens at the end of life if you’re no longer getting treatment to heal your condition.
