If you or a loved one is seriously ill, there are ways to manage the pain, live more comfortably, and make the most of each day. Hosparus Health is excited to announce the launch of its new palliative care brand, Pallitus Health Partners.

Pallitus Health Partners offers comprehensive palliative care for serious and chronic illness throughout our service area. Specialized services include chronic symptom and medication management, disease education, and care coordination. Interdisciplinary care teams provides medical expertise and support designed to meet individual goals and offer the best possible quality of life at any stage of serious illness.

What to expect in palliative care.

Unlike hospice care, palliative care (advanced illness care) does not require a terminal diagnosis. It is intended to optimize your quality of life and it can help you match your goals to your treatment choices. Palliative care services are delivered wherever you call home and for as long as necessary.

Pain and Symptom Management

A primary goal of our care is to ensure the comfort of our patients and to assist with medication and symptom management of their illness. During each visit we will check the patient’s pain level and adjust accordingly. You can expect your care team to make recommendations to lessen the effects of symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping.

Medication Management

Treating complex illnesses requires complex medication management. With the guidance of the patient’s existing doctors and specialists, we ensure that they’re getting the right doses of medication and that their pain is managed effectively.

24/7 Phone Support

Our commitment to patients and their families doesn’t take time off. That’s why we provide around-the-clock phone support for everyone. This service is offered at no added cost.

Social Work Visits

In addition to visits with a nurse practitioner and physician, you may also receive in-home and/or virtual visits with a social worker that may connect you with community resources (based on psychosocial needs). Our social workers are also equipped to provide advance care planning.

Medical Team

We have one of the largest teams in the country of doctors and nurse practitioners who are board-certified in hospice and palliative medicine. Patients in our care can continue to have their care directed in tandem with their doctors and our expert team.

Advance Care Planning

Hosparus Health encourages you to make future healthcare decisions known to family, friends, and healthcare providers. We can assist in advance care planning with completion of advance directives.

Volunteer Team

Our team of volunteers is specially trained to support patients and their families during treatment and care. Volunteers can help with things such as caregiver relief, running simple errands, and perhaps most important, companionship and emotional support.

We work hard to make palliative care affordable.

Palliative care services are covered by most insurance plans. Financial assistance is also available for those unable to pay. Please contact us to discuss your needs, and let us help you determine coverage eligibility and fees.

Now is a good time for compassion and comfort.
