In-home support and comfort
Our Advanced Care Program is built off a palliative care model, meaning we provide in-home care to support the symptoms and stress of a serious illness.
You're not alone
In-home care is beneficial for the physical and emotional needs of those with an advanced illness. In addition to our in-home services we offer 24/7 phone support.
A care plan for all
We work with caregivers and loved ones to explore values and treatment goals, making sure everyone agrees with next steps to ease physical and emotional pain.
What our Advanced Care Program looks like
We recommend the Advanced Care Program at any stage of an illness, but specifically if symptoms are intensifying.
Our team of nurses, social workers, chaplains, nurse practitioners and doctors supports an individual’s primary care doctor and does not take over their care.
If an individual is in the earlier stages of an illness:
- We work to reduce symptoms, explore goals and improve quality of life
- Prepare individuals, caregivers and loved ones for future decisions
- Transition an individual back to their primary care doctor when appropriate
If an individual is in last stages of illness
- We assist individuals, caregivers and loved ones by providing context for possible treatments and assisting with identifying appropriate next level of care
How do I know if someone is ready for advanced care?
Typically we recommend advanced care if an individual has a progressive condition and is looking for more holistic care.
