What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care in Los Angeles revolves around pain relief and symptom management. The main difference between hospice and palliative care is that in palliative care the disease is diagnosed at early stages and the patient is still taking treatment for the disease. Pain makes life difficult for terminally ill patients in Los Angeles. Many terminal diseases come with severe pain. When you come to us, we will provide pain management services (Palliative Care) to your loved one at home or in a care facility. Our main aim is to see that the pain is gone and the patient can rest and live well without pain. We have come with medical equipment to help the patients in their homes or place of choice in Los Angeles. We know that terminal diseases come with complicated symptoms and managing them can be challenging. That is why we have an able team of doctors and nurses who provide medical care that alleviates the symptoms. Palliative care can transition to hospice care if the illness is getting worse and the treatment is not working.
