Palliative Care

Palliative Care

Managing Your Pain so You Can Continue Recovering

Dealing with the symptoms of any painful or serious illness makes the recovery process difficult. Wilshire Home Health provides specialized care to make you more comfortable. It’s called palliative (pal-lee-uh-tiv) care.

You receive palliative care at the same time that you’re receiving treatments for your illness. Its primary purpose is to relieve the pain and other symptoms you are experiencing and improve your quality of life.

Palliative care provides relief from distressing symptoms – including pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, problems with sleep and many others. It can also help you deal with the side effects of the medical treatments you’re receiving. Ultimately, palliative care improves your quality of life.

Wilshire Home Health’s Palliative Care Program is different than hospice care, because it is available to patients at any point during an illness. The goal is to make you as comfortable as possible and improve the quality of your life.
