What can "Palliative Care" mean?

    The definition of Palliative can be interpreted in a wide variety of ways.

    For Pathway Hospice and Palliative Care we use the broadest definition, EVERYTHING that can address a symptom or improve life even if it may not cure is worthy Palliative Care. That is the standard at which we provide care.

    If a service, a therapy, a treatment or a conversation, helps to ease someone's pain or anxiety, if we can reduce someone's stress by helping them work through a problem, we'd rather offer those solutions than only focus on a pharmaceutical as the only tool in the tool belt.

    We actively want the patient, and family to be involved in planning care, in having as many options as possible to address their issues.

    Palliative Care at this level provide a proven increase in longevity, a more enjoyable life, better outcomes, and for us a better feeling about how we help our patients.
