Palliative care is the comprehensive symptom management and emotional support for patients suffering from chronic and debilitating diseases and disorders and their families.
Palliative care includes any treatment or therapy that creates comfort, enhances quality of life, mitigates pain, assists with decision-making, optimizes function and relieves stress.
No matter condition or prognosis, Einstein’s palliative care team treats every patient with uncommon attention and advanced therapies.
Potential illnesses requiring palliative care include:
- Any form of cancer
- Heart, lung, liver, kidney or vascular diseases
- Advanced neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease or ALS
- Any uncontrolled or unmanageable pain
