Palliative Care

Being diagnosed with a serious, sometimes chronic illness, can be frightening and overwhelming.

Palliative care workers provide care and assistance to individuals facing a life-limiting illness no matter the time frame. Palliative care is geared toward pain and symptom management wherever you may be in your health care journey. Methodist offers both hospital palliative care and home palliative care services.

Medical conditions that may benefit from home palliative care include:
  • Cancer
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Kidney (renal) disease
  • Arthritis and osteoporosis
  • Respiratory disorders, including COPD and emphysema
  • Neurological disorders, including MS and ALS
