Palliative Care Services

Serving Johns Creek, North Fulton County and Gwinnett County

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care (pronounced pal-lee-uh-tiv) is defined as “specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It is focused on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness—whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.

Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists who work together with a patient's other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment.” (Source: Center to Advance Palliative Care)

Palliative care is a medical specialty for people with serious illness, it differs from hospice because it is available at any stage in a serious illness. Palliative care can be provided in conjunction with curative treatments. Palliative care provides relief from the pain, symptoms and stress caused by any life-limiting illnesses such as:

  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Liver Disease
  • Lung Disease
  • Kidney Disease
  • Advanced (late-stage) Dementia
  • ALS, Multiple Sclerosis and more

Palliative care is provided while supporting individual choices with the expressed goal of eliminating suffering and improving an individual’s quality of life.

How Can a Caregiver Help?

Caregivers assist the palliative care providers and work with them to develop a plan of care that is consistent with the individual’s preferences and needs. Once a plan of care is in place our caregivers assist by providing personal care and assistance with other Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). These services include:

  • Bathing
