Presented By Taylor Davis, Delaware Hospice

Delaware Palliative, a program of Delaware Hospice, is focused on providing an extra layer of in-home support when medically appropriate for people diagnosed with a serious illness. Palliative care focuses on managing your symptoms and improving your quality of life while you continue to pursue treatment options with your own doctors. Along with symptom management, Delaware Palliative also offers practical knowledge, resources, and assistance to make the journey smoother. 

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is available to patients receiving treatment for a serious illness, such as cancer, congestive heart failure, COPD, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, or kidney failure.

  • Education about end-of-life care
  • Transitioning from hospital to home
  • Resource management support
  • Assistance with lifestyle changes
