Palliative Care

How can palliative care help you and your family?

The Palliative Care team at Danbury Hospital can provide expert pain and symptom management throughout the course of an illness; continuous coordination of care and communication with patients, families and caregivers across specialties; and provide emotional and spiritual support for patients and families.

What To Expect

Your current medical care will continue as ordered by your care team. The Palliative Care team will review your medical history and current treatment plan, and meet with you and your family to determine a plan of care that will be offered simultaneously with your current medical treatment.

Your Palliative Care Team is composed of:

  • Hospitalist physicians
  • Advanced practice registered nurses
  • Licensed clinical social workers
  • Spiritual care
  • Pharmacy
  • Dietary
  • Other members of your care team
