Palliative Care 

Palliative care focuses on relieving symptoms and improving quality of life. The plan of care is about comfort and getting the most out of life in spite of life-threatening disease or illness. Palliative care is not restricted to end of life. It differs from hospice care in that it is provided much sooner in the disease process (hospice criteria mandate that persons admitted must have a life-limiting illness with a prognosis of six months or less).

Members of UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital's cancer care team focus on alleviating symptoms – such as nausea, sore or dry mouth, anxiety, inability to sleep, pain, and stress of living with this diagnosis – through the use of palliative care practices, because the way our patients feel matters more than anything else.  From patients undergoing treatment, those on the road to recovery, or those nearing the end of life – this type of care is available at any age or stage of your illness.
