It's all about caring
Let us support you on your journey
For Patients and Families
We can help ease physical and emotional distress as you and your loved ones contend with a serious illness. Whether the difficult symptoms are from treatments, or the disease itself, we work with you to reduce the discomforts so you can get back to doing the things you love.
In addition to symptoms management, we can assist with advance directives, changes in goals of care, and difficult family dynamics. No matter the age of the patient or the stage of the illness—even if they are still seeking curative care—you remain in charge of your patients and their treatment. Our team's consultations simply give you an extra layer of support.
For Discharge Planners
Patients come to you in crisis—perhaps repeatedly over time—for symptoms that need more concentrated management. From patient and family education, to resolving family conflicts, our team can help identify goals of care and mobilize family responses to be in alignment with patient priorities. Let us provide the extra support that can help you reduce readmissions and create satisfied customers.
For Potential Employees
Do you like working on a positive team? Is it important to you to make a difference in people’s lives? Are you dedicated to compassionate care? If so, then you may have found a match. We’d love to hear from you!
