The goal of palliative care is to relieve the pain, anxiety, symptoms and stress that come with major health changes or a serious illness. At Centura Health at Home, our focus is on the human experience to enhance and complement the patient's current plan of care at any point in their illness. The palliative care team helps patients and families identify goals of care, provide guidance for difficult treatment choices and assists with advanced care planning. Palliative care's focus is on quality of life with emphasis on the physical, psychosocial, cultural and spiritual/religious aspects of care. Patients can still receive curative treatment for their illness while receiving palliative care. Centura Health at Home offers palliative care to adults and to children through The Butterfly Program.
