Our Palliative Care Consultation Service
Serious illness has tremendous and far-reaching effects on patients and families. A lack of information, combined with feelings of confusion, anxiety and doubt leaves many families ill-equipped to determine the best course of action. What decisions must be made for you or your loved one – both in the short- and long-term? To provide support and guidance in making these important healthcare decisions, the Parker Advanced Care Institute at VNA Health Group offers a Palliative Care Consultation Service.
Palliative Care is an individualized approach to addressing the physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual needs of patients and families facing a serious and/or complex illness.
The primary goal is to improve the quality of life for the patient and their family. Patients are assessed and provided relief from symptoms such as pain, nausea, or loss of appetite.
Palliative medicine specialists will also explain the patient’s prognosis, listen to the patient’s and family’s wishes, and develop an appropriate course of treatment.
Palliative Care Program
The Parker Advanced Care Institute’s Palliative Care Program focuses on providing palliative consultations in the community which includes the patient’s home as well as in skilled nursing and rehab facilities. Collaboration with facility physicians, social workers and other healthcare providers will ensure that all care is well-coordinated and that the patients’ needs are clearly communicated. Palliative consultations help patients and families navigate end of life treatment options. In most cases, a palliative consult is paid for by insurance including Medicare and Medicaid. For more information about our Palliative Care Program, please call 732-224-6654.
