About supportive palliative care
Palliative care does not take the place of your regular treatment; palliative care works in tandem with your regular treatments and with the specialists coordinating your care.
The goals of palliative care are to improve quality of life through symptom and pain relief, as well as provide emotional support and disease management for you and your family. Our Plano palliative care team partners with you to diminish your stress, anxiety and depression in the face of serious illness.
