A serious illness can change all aspects of your life. You might have multiple specialists to coordinate with and complex treatment decisions to make. It can be overwhelming.
Emanate Health's Palliative Care Services can help.
What our palliative care team can do for you
Emanate Health's palliative care specialists are your own personal advocates. They do everything possible to make sure you receive the type of care and support you need to meet the challenges of chronic pain or a serious illness.
Under the direction of your primary care doctor, our palliative care specialists can help you understand how different treatments and therapies work together to extend or improve your quality of life.
Here are some of the ways our palliative care specialists advocate for you:
- Communicating your needs and wishes to your larger treatment team
- Coordinating care from various physicians and departments
- Monitoring ongoing treatments
- Transitioning you to new care settings
Not to be confused with hospice care, palliative care can begin right after a diagnosis and last throughout treatment.
