Palliative Care

ABOUT PALLIATIVE CARE

Doylestown Health Palliative Care is committed to extending its healthcare excellence outside the hospital setting. Palliative care is a medical subspecialty for people living with a serious illness that focuses on the management of pain and other symptoms, support of caregiver needs, and coordination of care. Your palliative care team can help you with managing distressing symptoms like pain or shortness of breath. They will also help you and your family identify what is important for you and communicate your goals with your healthcare team.

Is Palliative Care the same as Hospice?

While both palliative care and hospice focus on improving the quality of life for a patient with a life limiting illness, there are differences. Patients can continue all of their treatment plans, medications, or doctors’ appointments in order to obtain palliative care services. Palliative care specialists work with you and your family to improve symptom control, maximize function and maintain quality of life.

Providers and Team

The Palliative Care team closely monitors your health and progress, while continually updating and communicating with your physician about your health and if needed, to modify your treatment plan.
