Personal Care to Improve Quality of Life

Differing from hospice care, palliative care offers personalized care for anyone dealing with a disease or condition impacting their quality of life. Billed under home health coverage of Medicare, Medicaid and many insurance plans, VNA’s palliative care program helps treat physical, emotional and spiritual symptoms that come with serious illness. With several service offerings, palliative care helps reduce suffering and improve quality of life. 

Palliative Care Services

  • Specialized Symptom Control: Working with your physician, registered nurses help control symptoms that cause discomfort. These symptoms include general pain, shortness of breath, nausea and anxiety.
  • Emotional and Spiritual Support: Trained social workers and VNA chaplains assist in providing you and your family effective ways to cope with your illness.
  • Information and Education: VNA’s palliative care team provides information on care, treatment options and community support groups to help you deal with your illness.
  • Case Management: You will receive assistance from the VNA to ensure effective communication between yourself, your physician and other healthcare providers.
