Palliative Care

Sentara Halifax Hospice and Palliative Care

Palliative medicine takes a holistic approach to care for patients in all disease stages, including those undergoing treatment for curable illnesses, living with chronic diseases, as well as patients who are nearing the end of life. Pain and symptom management is important, as serious illness can cause physical, social, and psychological symptoms such as pain, nausea, fatigue, depression and anxiety that can deteriorate your quality of life.
