How is palliative care different than hospice care?

Palliative care is for patients with any serious or complex chronic illness. Hospice care is designed for terminally ill patients with a life expectancy of six months or less. Palliative care also is used in tandem with curative care.

Who is eligible for palliative care?

Patients who are affected by the symptoms and stress of any serious or complex chronic illness may be eligible for palliative care. Many patients have conditions such as heart disease, lung disease, cancer or multiple sclerosis.

Where is palliative care provided?

Chaplaincy Palliative Care provides services wherever the patient calls home. Whether living in a private residence, assisted living facility or nursing home, patients tend to be more comfortable in familiar surroundings.

How do I begin palliative care?

The best way is to call us directly at (509) 783-7416 to discuss your exact needs and how we may be able to help. Our team will coordinate care with the patient’s primary care physician.
