Hospice and Palliative Care
Palliative Care Services
Although our medical professionals may not be able to treat certain conditions, we can make them more bearable. Our palliative care services can numb symptoms and side-effects of diseases to help patients feel better. We also help solve emotional, social, and practical problems that arise as a result of the illness.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life for the person and their family.
Our focus is not just on relieving pain and symptoms but also help you with important decision-making and establishing goals of care.

What Is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with a serious illness with the goal of improving the quality of life for both the person and family. It is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists who work with the patient’s other providers to provide an extra layer of support. Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided together with curative treatment.
Our team works with you and your loved ones to create a plan of care that offers relief from physical, emotional and spiritual pain, symptoms and stress. We explain your choices and ensure your needs and wishes are honored! It’s also important to know that palliative care is not the same as hospice care.
“Riverview Hospice Care and staff are angels on earth. They make things happen for their patients and families. I promised my Uncle that I would get him home this week and they made it happen. Everyone that I have talked to and worked with have gone over and above their jobs. I have made some new friends. You guys ALL rock! Thank you for helping me keep my promise.
