Palliative care provides you with a medical team that is designed to anticipate, reduce and manage physical, emotional, social and spiritual suffering. Palliative care may benefit you at any age and/or stage of your chronic illness and can be provided along with curative treatment. Services can be delivered to you in any care setting, including the comfort of your own home.
Palliative care is provided by a team of palliative care doctors, nurses, social workers and others who work together with a patient’s other medical providers. By choosing palliative care, you can live life more comfortably through:
- Shortness of breath
- Other symptoms indicated
- Exploring patient and family goals and wishes
- Assistance with completion of advance directives
Starting palliative care is as easy as asking for it. Tell your health care provider you’d like to add the specialists from Red River Valley Palliative Care to your medical team. Contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation or call (800) 237-4629.
