If needed, there is an on-site staff
dedicated to Palliative Care and Hospice.
The goal of Palliative Care is to help reduce both the physical pain and emotional suffering caused by the symptoms of advanced illness. This is accomplished by anticipating, preventing, and relieving suffering regardless of the stage of disease.
As with all things Rincon del Rio, the focus is enhancing quality of life by providing the right care at the right time.
Hospice is not necessarily a physical place—it can be a service that comes to wherever one is living.
Because everyone’s situation is different–most people won’t need hospice–there will be a specific, personalized plan tailored to changing needs.
