Palliative Care

Palliative Care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness. It is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the child and family. Sunshine’s Palliative Services supports your entire family. We are here for you 24/7. Our comprehensive family-centered approach encompasses pain and symptom management, as well as psychological, physical and spiritual care within a holistic framework. These services extend throughout the course of the illness and are continually reassessed.

Palliative Care is provided by our skilled Interdisciplinary Care Team, who work together with the family to add an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age or stage of illness, and can be provided along with curative treatment. Palliative Care is based on need, not prognosis. Palliative Care services include planned interventions by our team to support the dignity of the child and the family’s experience with empathy and culturally sensitive respect. Interventions are designed to reaffirm life.
