Our Frances B. Cohen Palliative Care Program provides patient-centered care to people suffering from a wide range of chronic and complex conditions. This specialized care helps them relieve their pain and symptoms, while also addressing their emotional and spiritual needs. A team of medical professionals provide an extra layer of skilled health care, help families coordinate care by multiple providers, and assist in goal setting and care planning.
While sometimes used in conjunction with hospice care, patients do not need to be at end-of-life to receive palliative care as it addresses symptoms of illness and side effects of treatment. It is supportive care for seriously ill patients who have special physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
A generous grant from Frances B. Cohen fund supports the JGS Lifecare mission of improving the physical, spiritual and emotional health of individuals and families.
