Chandler Regional's Palliative Care program provides a special kind of care for patients and families living with a life-threatening illness. In keeping with our mission to improve the health of our community, the program embraces you and your family as a unit and recognizes cultural, ethnic and spiritual differences.
Palliative Care refers to the specialized approach toward improving the quality of life for those with serious illness, as well as addressing the concerns of your family. The goal is to provide symptomatic and emotional support if you are suffering from a potentially life-threatening illness by ensuring your comfort and dignity.
Our interdisciplinary approach is to focus on you as a person, not just a specific disease, by offering comprehensive management of physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and existential symptoms for you and your family during any state of a serious illness while improving the quality of life.
Palliative Care differs from hospice care in that the you can continue to receive appropriate, active, curative treatment and need not have a life expectancy of six months or less. Our Palliative Care team provides skilled, compassionate care while you are hospitalized, and ensures the best discharge plan available to meet your unique needs. The team's aim is to relieve suffering and improve quality of life during any state of a life-threatening illness, from diagnosis through the end of life and bereavement.
