As an individual in the midst of dealing with a serious medical condition, you have a resource that can ease your pain and lessen severe symptoms. You and your family can receive comfort and support at a time when you need it most.
Palliative care goes beyond treatment of a physical disease or trauma. It addresses the social, emotional, and spiritual needs that arise, resulting from a disruption of you—and your family’s—normal life routine.
Keystone Medical Services offers a Palliative Care program for patients who are suffering from an advanced illness that is serious but not necessarily terminal. It’s for those not yet ready for hospice care but whose illness is at the level of severity requiring a broad range of special support services.
With a request from your physician, our board-certified hospice and palliative care physicians will consult with you and your family. This includes evaluation and treatment of difficult-to-control symptoms or discomfort due to the illness or ongoing treatments and non-medical guidance.
