Comfort Care in Westlake Village

Comfort care, also called palliative care, involves pain and symptom management to improve quality of life. It is an ideal treatment option for people who live with a chronic illness that comes with unpleasant symptoms. For example, people with COPD, heart failure, Parkinson's, dementia, cancer or another illness that is progressive or debilitating can benefit from symptom management.

Palliative Versus Hospice Care

The two approaches have similarities and a distinct difference. The difference is that palliative care supplements a treatment plan that focuses on managing or trying to treat a chronic illness. When people no longer want treatments that are designed to prolong life, they choose hospice care. However, hospice care also includes comfort measures that palliative care does, such as pain and symptom management.

If you have a chronic illness that reduces your quality of life and you want to improve your life as you manage or treat your condition, palliative care is a good choice. Our team provides in-home treatments and care.

Receiving Comfort Care

Our team works with you and your health care providers to learn about your specific needs. For example, if you are receiving treatment for cancer that causes fatigue, depression, nausea and insulin instability, our team works with qualified physicians to find the right medications or treatments to manage multiple symptoms simultaneously and improve your quality of life. Counseling, music therapy, nutrition therapy and other treatments can also be beneficial to supplement your comfort care plan. Part of comfort care is continually monitoring your condition.

While we hope to see everyone improve, we understand that progressive illnesses can lead to deteriorating conditions. If your condition deteriorates, we work with you to change care approaches according to your needs.

Our team serves Westlake Village and surrounding areas, including Los Angeles, North Hollywood, Reseda, Calabasas, Antelope Valley and many others. Please contact us today to learn more about comfort care at home.
