Palliative Care

Palliative care is a multidisciplinary medical service designed to enhance the quality of life for patients who suffer from serious illnesses.  This is accomplished by not only relieving symptoms, but by also ensuring that all treatments are aligned with individual preferences and values.

At Atlantic Health System, we provide patients and their families with a wide range of palliative care services, including:

  • Expert pain and symptom management
  • Social, psychological and spiritual support
  • Education on medical treatment options and disease process
  • Assistance with health care decision-making and identifying goals of care
  • Planning transitions to the home or other care settings
  • Bereavement support and services, including those offered by Atlantic Home Care and Hospice

Palliative Care Team

Our professional palliative care team is made up of physicians, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, chaplains, consulting psychiatrists, dieticians and social workers. They maintain close contact with the patient’s primary care doctor and specialists to ensure a seamless continuum of care.

Eligibility – Palliative Care versus Hospice Care

Palliative care is appropriate for people of any age or stage of illness, whether it’s curable, chronic or life-threatening. Some patients may even make a full recovery. In contrast, those who have a life expectancy of six months or less and wish to forgo curative treatments may benefit more from hospice care.

Palliative care is available at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center, Chilton Medical Center and Goryeb Children’s Hospital.
