Palliative Care in Bronxville, NY Broken Down:

Palliative care focuses on proving relief from the symptoms and stress of an illness. The main goal is to provide support for the patient and family along with curative treatment if indicated necessary by the patient’s physician. This is not considered end-of-life care, like hospice, but rather care that helps the patient through the illness.

What is the difference between hospice and palliative care in Bronxville, NY?Palliative and Hospice Care

Palliative care can begin at the diagnosis and coincide with treatment, while hospice care begins after the treatments and once it is clear that the patient is not going to survive the illness. For example, if a patient is suffering from a curable illness and is going through treatment for it, they’ll need some extra help and care in their everyday lives, not to mention support from all sides. This support is also extended to the family, as illness affects everyone involved. Physical, emotional, and spiritual support is largely needed during these times and the experienced staff at Jansen is here to help wherever they can.
