In-Home Palliative Care


Quality of Life

Do you, or someone you love, have a serious illness such as cancer, heart failure, lung disease or kidney failure? If so, you may be sick of trips to the emergency room and unwanted hospital stays to treat pain, shortness of breath or other symptoms.

Palliative care is different from hospice care because care starts at the initial diagnosis of a serious illness, curative treatment or at the end of life.

Dr Carla Perissinotto

The main goal of palliative care at-home is to improve the quality of life for patients to help you stay safely at home. Our compassionate interdisciplinary clinical team provides comprehensive palliative care for people with serious or chronic illnesses at home. We focus on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness with the goal of improving quality of life. It is based on your needs, not on the prognosis. It is appropriate at any stage in a serious illness, and it can be provided along with curative treatment.

Our Palliative Care At-Home program increases patient and family satisfaction, improves quality, and helps keep patients stable while avoiding unnecessary hospitalization. It will treat your pain and other symptoms. It will help you understand your disease and your treatment options. It will help you, and your family, cope with the everyday challenges of living with a serious illness.
