What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care is supportive care for someone with a serious/chronic illness and is provided in conjunction with home health treatment. It is not hospice care. Patients must have a home health/skilled need to qualify for palliative care. The Sequoia Palliative Care team uses a multi-disciplinary approach to address the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual needs of our palliative patients.

Our multi-disciplinary team includes:

  • A medical doctor (Patients still keep their primary physician)
  • Nurse trained in hospice/palliative care
  • Chaplain

Utilizing specific care conferences to discuss outcomes of each palliative patient, our team is committed to:

  • Optimizing quality of life by anticipating, preventing and treating symptoms
  • Providing advanced management of pain and other distressing symptoms
  • If desired and appropriate, facilitating transition to hospice services for end-of-life comfort care
  • Communicating with the family to ensure they are central in decision making, while providing the best quality of life for the patient
