Individuals with cancer, heart disease, lung disease, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS), and other life threatening illnesses are assisted with symptom monitoring, pain control, management of side effects from chemotherapy or radiation, management of IV therapies, and medication instruction. Our team consults and coordinates care with other health professionals and works closely with the physician to resolve questions about when to request hospice services and help establish a plan of care that fits the needs of the patient and their family. Additionally, patients and families are provided with support to help address the social and psychological impact of a serious illness.
The Bridge Program allows you to continue receiving active treatment while benefiting from our highly skilled clinical team.
