Palliative Care Specialized medical care focused on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness.

VNA Health provides an individualized Palliative Care program for people with palliative care needs with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms, advance care planning, and transition of care needs. Palliative Care is centered on both the patient and family or caregiver. Palliative Care personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family, caregiver, lifestyle, values, culture, and wishes.

Our Palliative Care program exists to provide support and care for persons with a serious, life limiting or life-threatening illness, condition, or injury so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. We support the belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring, and supportive community, patients and family/caregivers experience an improved quality of life.
