Benefits to the Family

"Our daughter’s terminal illness is devastating. The palliative care team has been and continues to be there for us, easing our burdens through this terrible time."Hand in Hand parent

Pediatric palliative care benefits families by:

  • Making the family the focus for care
  • Focusing on alleviating symptoms that detract from quality of life
  • Advocating for care that keeps the patient’s and family’s goals in mind
  • Allowing you more time to be parents – not service coordinators
  • Helping you prepare for potential crisis situations so you can make decisions and have a plan in advance
  • Offering a support system to help patients live as actively as possible
  • Assisting in decision making for medical interventions
