Palliative care can benefit people at any age or any stage of their chronic illness, and you may receive palliative care along with curative treatment.
Palliative care helps people who struggle with ongoing pain, distress, symptoms and side effects of treatment from any serious illness, which may include:
- Heart Disease/Congestive Heart Failure
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD
- Kidney disease
- Chronic Liver Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Dementia or Alzheimer’s
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
You and your family will be assisted by experienced and caring Red River Valley Palliative Care staff who will visit you in your home and who are just a phone call away with care, information and support.
Palliative care works alongside and does not replace your ongoing treatments. 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.
