Hospice and Palliative Care of Virginia
Who We Are
Palliative care is provided by the Hospice and Palliative Care of Virginia. Not all palliative care patients are in hospice, but all hospice patients receive Palliative care. Palliative care is comprehensive, specialized care provided by an interdisciplinary team to patients and families living with a chronic, severe advanced illness expected to progress toward dying, but not necessarily with a firm prognosis of death. Care is particularly focused on alleviating suffering and promoting quality of life. Major concerns are pain and symptom management, information sharing and advance care planning, psychosocial and spiritual support and coordination of care.
