Palliative Care in Central Oregon

Palliative Care can help you or your loved one:
•Review patient medical history, as well as symptoms and medication side effects, to address the care needs of the whole person.
•Understand the illness and offer options.
•Offer emotional support to ease feelings of isolation.
•Support through information and connection to community resources.
•Provide access to social work, spiritual care, and volunteer support.
