The staff at Joliet Area Community Hospice go above and beyond the call of duty to meet the needs of both patient and family as they face the end of life looking at not only the physical and psychological needs, but also the environmental, social, spiritual, and emotional needs.
When Palliative Care Should Be Considered
The Palliative Consulting Services of Joliet Area Community Hospice includes a specialized team of doctors, nurse practitioners and other specialists to provide expert treatment to support a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs. The role of the Palliative Care Team is to facilitate communication and understanding among the patient, family and providers of care with the hope that the person and family will experience the highest possible satisfaction with the care they receive.
