Comfort is the heart of our care. For over 20 years, Pathways Hospice & Palliative Care has been enriching the lives of patients and their loved ones by assuring the most advanced medical care is provided in a compassionate and comforting manner. Our holistic approach to care focuses on comfort of the body, mind and spirit.
Hospice care serves those in the end stages of illness who have chosen to focus on comfort and quality of life rather than curative treatments. Patients and their famlies benefit most from hospice services when intervention begins early, as early admission allows time for hospice to relieve symptoms and facilitate the kind of open communication that can nurture relationships.
Palliative care is a unique service that provides comfort to individuals dealing with chronic and/or life-limiting illness but are not ready or do not choose hospice care. Unlike hospice, palliative care may be used in conjunction with curative treatments.
THE HOSPICE TEAM
Hospice care is not provided by one person alone. Pathways Hospice & Palliative Care utilizes a team of highly qualified professionals from many disciplines and trained hospice volunteers. All team members specialize in easing the physical, emotional and spiritual pain that often accompanies a life-threatening illness.
