What is Comfort Care at Pleasantville Hospice?
At Pleasantville Hospice in Burbank, we pride ourselves on providing care for the whole person by attending to the patient’s spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs. Though each patient might have different needs in the aforementioned areas, above all, we aim to relieve any and all suffering as part of our end of life care. Broadly speaking, we provide this care through either palliative or hospice care.
Often times, health professionals administer palliative care with the intention to relieve suffering rather than in an attempt to cure any underlying illness. As the end of life approaches, our team of health professionals work hard to ensure that our patient’s enjoy life by focusing on treatments which are most likely to reduce pain and suffering. Though the prognosis may appear grim, the patient’s outlook on life does not have to match the illness.
Though there are similarities between palliative and hospice care, there are important differences between the two types of treatment offered at Pleasantville Hospice. Generally, patients arrive in hospice care with a terminal illness in which a physician has determined there are unlikely any effective treatments. Our team of professionals recognize the importance of providing care for both you and your family. Our hospice care team wants to ensure that this period of time is the most comfortable for you and your loved ones.
