When is it time to consider Palliative Care?
It may be time to consider Palliative Care when the effects of an illness begin to impact quality of life and activities of daily living, despite the best care received by medical professionals.
What can I expect with Palliative Care?
Palliative Care assists individuals in achieving the best possible quality of life by reducing both the physical and emotional burden of an advanced illness journey. In addition to tailored pain management and symptom control, the Palliative Care team provides individuals with a better understanding of their condition and choices for care.
Who pays for Palliative Care?
Palliative care visits are paid for by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance. If you happen to encounter payment issues at any time, Capital Caring’s Care Navigators can help you and your family. In addition, the Patient Care Fund is a service which can also provide assistance for those without resources to pay.
