Palliative care focuses on treating symptoms for people who have a life-limiting illness, at any point in their illness, and whether or not they are seeking curative treatments. Like hospice, palliative care focuses on improving a person’s quality of life physically, mentally and spiritually.
Join hospice and palliative care nurse Jill Bixby, APRN to learn about what palliative care is and the its similarities and differences with hospice. There will be plenty of time for questions and comments.
This event is sponsored by Pine Tree Hospice and will be held on Tuesday, June 5, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Mayo Regional Hospital Resource Center. Call 564-4346 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
