Frequently Asked Questions

We are here to help you. Listed below are frequently asked questions regarding Palliative Care. If you have a question that is not covered in our FAQ please contact us and a Traditions Health team member will be happy to assist you.

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care is specialized care for patients with a serious or life-limiting illness. Your palliative care team will work with you to understand your goals. This compassionate interdisciplinary team will provide the needed care to help relieve your physical, emotional, and spiritual symptoms. They will walk with you on your health care journey as your disease progresses to help you and your family maintain the best possible quality of life.

Who is eligible to receive Palliative Care?

Palliative Care is specialized care for patients with a serious or life-limiting illness. A serious or life-limiting illness is an illness that progresses causing symptoms or pain that leads to decreased quality of life, difficulty performing daily tasks, or eventual death. Some examples of serious or life-limiting illnesses are cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, and Parkinson’s disease.

Do I need an order from my physician to receive palliative care?

Yes. You need an order from your physician to receive palliative care. Our palliative care team will collaborate with you and your physician to design the right plan of care to help you maintain the best possible quality of life while living with a serious or life-limiting illness.

Who provides palliative care?

Your palliative care team may consist of a physician, nurse practitioner, medical social worker, spiritual professional and most importantly, you. When you are admitted to care, an assessment will be performed to determine your care needs and develop a plan that best meets those needs. You will take an active part in planning your care by helping the team understand your goals to promote your best quality of life.

How does palliative care enhance the care I am currently receiving?

The care provided by our compassionate palliative care team will work in conjunction with the care that you are currently receiving. We will provide support for you, your family, and your caregivers. Receiving palliative care provides you with a team of clinicians at home that recognize symptoms early and are able to provide the necessary care to decrease emergency department visits and hospitalizations. Our goal is to to help minimize your symptoms and pain, and to provide you with the physical, emotional, and spiritual support to enhance your quality of life.

How does palliative care differ from hospice care?

Palliative care is comfort care. The difference between palliative and hospice care is the timing at which you receive the comfort care during your illness. If you are still seeking curative treatment for your illness, but need the support of symptom and pain management, our palliative care team will provide the comfort care to assist you with your quality of life. When you reach the place in that journey where there are no longer options for curative treatment, or you have decided that you no longer wish to seek curative treatment our hospice care team will join you to support you in your end-of-life journey.

Is palliative care covered by insurance?

Palliative care services are covered by Medicare Part B and some private insurance plans.
