Community Care Choices

 

What is Community Care Choices?
Community Care Choices is a Palliative Care Program that provides compassionate care to patients with serious illnesses through symptom management, education and support.
Our specially trained staff in collaboration with our patient and their physician will develop an individualized care plan to provide comfort and pain and symptom management to improve quality of life.
