Journeys Palliative Care
What Is Palliative Care?
Living with the symptoms of serious or chronic illness can be challenging. Journeys Palliative Care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. This type of care is focused on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress that a serious illness can cause. It is designed for individuals who are not ready for hospice care, but who may benefit from extra support, avoiding frequent hospitalizations and trips to the emergency room.
Journeys Palliative Care serves individuals with serious or chronic illness such as:
- Congestive heart failure (CHF)
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Age-related frailty
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Advanced dementia
- Long-term effects of stroke with disability
- Kidney failure
- Advanced liver disease
- ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
Palliative care treats the whole person, not just the body part or the illness
We help with recommendations on how to have the best possible quality of life, how to manage the symptoms of the illness and how to coordinate care with other physicians and providers.
