Get relief from pain with palliative care
People who are diagnosed with an acute or chronic serious illness can suffer from pain as a result. Palliative care focuses on providing personalized support for these patients, helping them reach a higher quality of life.
For which diseases does palliative care help ease pain?
Palliative care is used to treat pain that may occur from the following illnesses, but is not limited to these illnesses alone:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Bone marrow transplant
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Congestive heart failure
- Eosinophil-Associated Disease
- Kidney disease
- Leukemia and Lymphoma
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
- Sickle Cell Anemia
What do palliative care partners do?
Patients can expect to receive support with pain they experience from their illness. The team will assess the patient’s pain level and other symptoms, then help the patient and their family understand treatment options and set goals.
CareBridge’s palliative team helps patients gain more control over their healthcare, and provide comfortable, supportive atmospheres.
How often do our care partners visit?
Based on the patient’s needs, nurse practitioners visit up to two times per month. Social workers and chaplains are available upon request. Visits occur during regular business hours and are not available during nights or weekends.
How do I pay for palliative care that treats pain?
It will depend on the patient’s individual plan, but palliative care for pain is usually covered by private insurance companies, and Medicare covers all palliative charges.
