At Ascension, we provide palliative care to patients and their loved ones that respects their personal values and wishes.
Our palliative care services focus on improving quality of life for individuals facing chronic or life-threatening conditions. We manage their pain and meet other physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs from time of diagnosis throughout the process of living and dying, helping patients:
- Identify their care goals and make informed care decisions that are best for them
- Continue living fully in community
- Optimize their ability to function independently as long as possible
We also support our patients’ families, friends and communities in their bereavement.
