Many people believe palliative care is only for the terminally ill. However, palliative medicine can be provided by a doctor while other doctors work with you to try to cure your illness. People of any age, and at any stage in an illness, curable, chronic or life-threatening can take advantage of the benefits of palliative care.

Palliative care may help you recover from your illness by relieving pain, anxiety or loss of appetite, as you undergo sometimes difficult medical treatments or procedures, such as surgery or chemotherapy.

Palliative care strives to improve your quality of life while you are ill. It also provides:

  • Provides relief from pain and other uncomfortable symptoms.
  • Assists you in making difficult medical decisions.
  • Coordinates care with your other doctors and helps you navigate the often-complex health care system.
  • Guides you in making a plan for living well, based on your needs, concerns and goals for care.
  • Provides you and your loved ones emotional and spiritual support and guidance.

Hospice is a type of palliative care for people who likely have six months or less to live, without the possibility of a cure. Hospice care is about providing control, dignity and comfort so you have the best possible quality of life during the time you have. Hospice care also provides support and grief therapy for loved ones.

Dr. Hiser and his team are heaven on earth. My mother-in-law was diagnosed with dementia. He is addressing all our issues. She has finally been given the right medication. He immediately had her referred to a home health agency. She now has physical therapy and nurses to help us. We were at at our wits end before. He is a wonderful doctor with a highly skilled team. We love Dr. Hiser.
