In addition to our Hospice care, we offer Palliative Care Services. Palliative Care Services are designed to improve the quality of life of patients and their families through an interdisciplinary approach to the prevention and relief of suffering. By early identification and assessment, palliative care treats all aspects of the individual: physical, psychosocial and spiritual.
Unlike Hospice, palliative care patients do not have to be diagnosed with a terminal diagnosis to benefit from palliative care. Amity is committed to helping our patients be free from unnecessary suffering thus, our palliative care program seeks to provide comprehensive care based on respect for patients' goals, preferences and choices. Amity is capable of providing both palliative care and palliatve care counseling.
