Palliative care provides comfort for individuals living with serious illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, lung disease and kidney failure. The purpose of palliative care is to alleviate the physical symptoms and emotional distress related to diseases and/or medical treatments. Avow’s Palliative Care team can see patients in the outpatient clinic on Avow’s campus or wherever a patient calls home. Palliative care can be offered during treatments for illness and its purpose is to improve the patient’s quality of life during treatment.
