Palliative care, sometimes referred to as “comfort care,” is specialized medical care and support for patients living with a serious or life-limiting illness. The focus is to relieve pain, symptoms and stress at any time during a serious illness and to support patients and families as they work through difficult medical decisions.
Empath Medical Services provides in-home medical care through visits to private homes and assisted-living and skilled-nursing facilities, and offers compliance and regulatory support for medical facilities that do not have an on-site medical director.
