In-Home Palliative Care

Specialized physician-led, in-home care to help relieve symptoms, minimize side effects, and dramatically improve the quality of life for patients and reduce the burden and overwhelm for families.

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness. The care focuses on relieving symptoms, preventing side effects, and improving the quality of life for patients and families. Palliative care is provided for patients even when they are continuing to receive aggressive or curative care for their medical conditions. Hospice is a form of palliative care for people believed to have six months or less to live.

Many health conditions, for example congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, kidney disease, cancer, ALS, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease, can lead to endless cycles of doctor visits for testing and treatments, hospitalizations and more. There comes a point when you’re ready to prioritize your time with your family and quality of life by bringing all the care, options and support that you and your family need into your home.

Empowered Endings’ compassionate specialists provide high-touch, comprehensive, in-home palliative care that allows you to optimize the coordination of your care from the comfort of your home while your loved ones receive the support and guidance they need as well.

We care, and we understand. We know where the gaps are and how to fill them so you feel heard, held, and whole throughout the journey.

Bob and Elizabeth are just very gentle souls. There was no pressure and shared with my wife Rachel and I the many options you have to consider. It felt just like someone putting their arms around you.

[Dr. Bill Parker]

For us as a family, Bob and Elizabeth gave us the tranquility and support that we needed at that moment. It made a total difference in the way my Dad passed away. It allowed me to be the daughter and not a nurse.
