Frequently Asked Questions About Palliative Care
How is palliative care different than hospice?
Hospice is an offering designed to serve patients at the end of life. Palliative care refers to easing pain and discomfort at any stage of an illness. Patients receiving palliative care are treated for symptoms like shortness of breath, fatigue, anxiety or depression, lack of appetite, nausea, or side effects of treatment.
Do I have to stop my current treatment to receive palliative care?
Our palliative care services are designed to complement not replace your current treatment. You can continue treatment in accordance with your physicians orders.
What does palliative care cost?
Residential’s palliative care program is 100% covered for eligible Medicare beneficiaries. This includes care team visits as well as calls with a dedicated Journey Counselor — for patients who elect for an in-home consult deductibles and copays may apply.
