Patients with life-limiting conditions can often achieve a better quality of life with palliative care. Patients who have tried all treatment options for their symptoms may find relief with palliative care.
Please visit How Palliative Care Minimizes the Symptoms of Disease to learn about the various conditions that may benefit from palliative care.
The patient’s physician must certify that the patient is medically appropriate for palliative care. Keystone will contact the physician to obtain this verification, if the patient desires Keystone Medical Services care.
Remember, when an individual suffers the symptoms and fear that come with a serious illness, it is never too early to begin palliative care.
