ENRICHING LIFE FOR THOSE WITH SERIOUS ILLNESS.

Palliative Care

Regardless of the patient’s age or stage of illness, CoxHealth at Home’s palliative care physicians and nurses can help provide relief from symptoms, pain, and the stress patients and their families experience while living with serious illness. Working in concert with the patient’s team of physicians and nurses, our palliative care program is a consultation service that provides an extra layer of support the patient so often needs. Palliative care, which is covered under Medicare Part B, MO HealthNet, and some private insurance, is for those who:

  • Have a life limiting illness of one to two years
  • Might still require and want treatment toward a cure
  • Desire an enhanced quality of life
  • Would like emotional, physical, and spiritual support
  • Need pain management and control of distressing symptoms
