VNA’S Palliative Care Program helps patients manage chronic diseases.
When you receive a diagnosis of a chronic or life-limiting disease, it’s important to understand that you have choices regarding your treatment. VNA Home Health Hospice’s Palliative Care program helps patients understand their disease better so they can make informed decisions about their care. In addition to cancer, some of the diseases we support include COPD, Heart Failure, ALS, Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
There are different ways to treat almost every disease. It doesn’t mean that any one way is right or wrong. We believe in empowering our patients and their families with knowledge and we work with other medical providers to help patients receive the care that is right for their unique, personal situation. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
If you or a loved one is managing a life-limiting disease, let’s talk. We will help you focus on relief of symptoms and gain control over your care. We will work in collaboration with your health care team.
