Clinical Services

For compassionate hospice and palliative clinical services, you can rely on the professionals at Trustbridge. We are passionate about helping patients and their families navigate through this often difficult and confusing time.

Palliative and hospice care are both forms of comfort care provided to patients to reduce stress and offer complex symptom relief related to a serious illness. Both palliative and hospice care help to reduce hospital admissions and improve patient-family satisfaction. Compared to hospice care, palliative care is not dependent on prognosis and can be delivered at the same time as treatments that are meant to cure. Hospice care is specifically for individuals with terminal illnesses and limited life expectancies who decide they no longer wish to pursue aggressive measures.

Palliative Care

Palliative medicine specialists

Palliative care is a medical specialty focused on relieving the suffering that often accompanies a serious illness or condition and providing the best possible quality of life for you and your loved ones. Palliative care services do not replace your primary medical treatment. Additionally, palliative care may be offered at any stage of disease.

Hospice Care

Hospice is palliative care at the end of life. It is a special type of supportive care that is focused on providing comfort—relieving physical, emotional and spiritual suffering. Specifically, hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to deliver expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to the patient’s needs. Hospice care is provided when a patient has 6 months or less to live if the illness runs its expected course.
