Palliative Care


Easing Symptoms & Improving Quality of Life

 

Perhaps you or someone you love is dealing with the last stages of an illness that cannot be cured. The goal of Munson Palliative Care is to help people live well for the remainder of their lives.

Our team can help you manage your symptoms. These symptoms may include pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea, anxiety, and depression. We can also help your caregivers learn to cope with the stress they may be experiencing. We recognize that each person’s needs are unique and we tailor our care to fit your situation.

Often, patients and their caregivers are faced with many difficult decisions during a life threatening illness. Our providers will help you better understand the benefits and burdens of your options. You can then be more confident that the treatment you choose will help you achieve your goals.

You might benefit from palliative care if any of the following are true:

             You wonder, “Why are we doing this?”

             You feel miserable much of the time

             You feel your wishes are not being heard

             Your life seems to revolve around medical treatment yet you don’t feel any better
