Palliative Home Care

Our Stand By Me Palliative Home Care program provides comprehensive, patient and family-centered care to people who are receiving conventional medicine to treat life-threatening illnesses.  We provide expert pain management and medical care services in patient homes and in assisted living facilities.

Our interdisciplinary teams create customized, Comprehensive Plans of Care that address physical, spiritual, emotional and practical needs to help each patient and family to maximize their quality of life.  

This program is appropriate for patients with a prognosis greater than six months.
