SPECIALISTS IN COMFORT
RELIEF FROM SYMPTOMS & STRESS OF ANY SERIOUS ILLNESS
If you or a loved one need relief from the symptoms and stress of a potentially life-limiting illness – even as you’re receiving curative treatments – NorthStar Palliative Care can help. NorthStar Palliative Care is dedicated to helping patients and families cope with the many burdens of a serious illness and address the psychological, emotional, and spiritual suffering that you and your family may experience.
Just like a cardiologist specializes in treating diseases of the heart, or a pulmonologist is an expert in the lungs and respiratory system, the NorthStar Palliative Care team are quality of life specialists, focused on your complete needs, not just your illness.
WHAT IS PALLIATIVE CARE?
“Palliative” pronounced “pal-LEE-uh-tiv” comes from the Latin root meaning “cloak” or “cover.” The goal of palliative care is to relieve suffering and provide comfort while other treatments work to improve or cure the illness or disease.
NorthStar Palliative Care physicians and nurse practitioners specialize in palliative medicine and make visits to wherever patients call home to treat symptoms, discuss goals of care and discuss options for care.
