Agapé Palliative Care
alliative care is a type of health care that is designed to provide relief from the symptoms of major illnesses; pain management is the most common type of palliative care. Agapé Senior Post-Acute Care Centers provides palliative care for hospice patients or other individuals who require pain/symptom management. Education, communication and support for palliative care patients and their families are also provided. Agapé Senior appreciates the importance of a personal touch. Transitioning from rehabilitation to the home or an assisted living facility regularly requires a carefully considered interim care plan. Our medical staff works with discharged patients and their families to develop individualized treatment plans. Such a plan includes healthcare, but also social services and tailored dietary guidelines. When and if a period of transition is needed, our long-term care facilities and short-term rehabilitation programs are always available.
