Palliative Care

Palliative care provides relief to a person with a serious or chronic illness, often so that patients can spend their last days in the comfort of their own home. Unlike hospice, palliative care can be used at any time during the course of an illness. JFS focuses on managing a client’s symptoms (including pain management), assisting individuals and families with care navigation, and the decision-making process. Support and guidance come from members of an interdisciplinary team including:
• Registered Nurses
• Nursing Assistants/Licensed Practical Nurses
• Social Workers
• Recreational Therapist
• Registered Dietitian
• Volunteers
