Seniors At Home (JFCS) Palliative Care Consultation

Palliative care is about improving quality of life for people with chronic or serious illness by providing an extra layer of support. We have an interdisciplinary palliative care team who will work with you, your family, and your healthcare team to develop a plan that addresses your medical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs. An in-home consultation is provided to address your questions and concerns and help you make informed decisions about this challenging time in life. Other services include healthcare advocacy, chaplain visits, prevention and relief of symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness, volunteer matching, and more. Please inquire about fees.
