Palliative Care

Palliative Care Can Improve Quality of Life for Seniors with Serious Illnesses

Sometimes, more serious conditions require a greater depth of care. University Hospitals Center for Lifelong Health provides supportive palliative care to meet the individual needs of patients suffering from more serious or chronic illnesses. Palliative care takes the entire person into account, caring for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their families. When serious illness or the side effects of treatment result in a wide range of life-changing physical and psychological symptoms, palliative care is important. It can help ease or prevent pain, stress and suffering during an illness and provide patients and their families with the best possible quality of life.
