Palliative Care

At New Milford Visiting Nurse and Hospice, we provide comprehensive Palliative care. When you or a loved one is in need of specialized medical care, because of a serious illness. We are focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.

Palliative care can begin at diagnosis and continue alongside curative care. When curative care is no longer effective, the patient transitions from Palliative services to Hospice. Palliative and Hospice services are deeply rooted in the spirit of hope, love and respect. Both Hospice and Palliative Care can be received at home, skilled nursing facilities or in a hospital setting. Referrals may come from the patient, family member, physician or other health care clinician. Call us to help determine whether Hospice services are appropriate.
