The mission of Keystone Medical Services, a Palliative Care program of Hospice of Holland, is to empower the patient suffering from pain, and the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. Palliative Care is a specialty care, designed to relieve symptoms and stress while improving overall quality of life. Palliative care is designed for seriously ill patients who want to improve their quality of life and the quality of life for their loved ones.
PALLIATIVE CARE BENEFITS
Palliative care is different than hospice care in its curative and rehabilitative approach. Patients receiving palliative care often experience decreased pain, improvement of appetite, less anxiety, and more strength and guidance to make decisions surrounding their quality of life.
