There comes a time for many when no amount of prescription drugs or medical procedures will cure an ailment. The suffering and pain some people endure is heart-wrenching. What to do?
Palliative care is an option.
Palliative care doesn’t provide a cure, but rather it emphasizes comfort and improves quality of life. It is any form of medical care or treatment that focuses on reducing the severity of a disease’s symptoms or its progress and may be provided at any point during an illness.
Aspirus Medford Hospital and Aspirus Care & Rehab – Medford provide palliative care to help reduce or eliminate pain and other physical symptoms of a life-threatening or life-limiting illness. Our providers will work with each patient to improve their general well-being, and spiritual, psychological, and social comfort.
