Community-Based Approach Allows Patients Care Wherever They Call Home
Central Indiana community-based palliative care provider Paradigm Health is right on target as palliative care takes a primary role in patient care wherever a patient may call home. Paradigm Health’s community-based approach to palliative care is an extra level of support to increase quality of life and allows the patient to remain home—or wherever they call home—alleviating multiple trips back and forth to the hospital and streamlining doctor’s appointments and coordinating resources. Palliative care is a specialty of medicine focused on pain and symptom management, and the stress of a serious illness and chronic disease management. Anyone who is severely of chronically ill in search of pain and symptom management can benefit from a community-based, holistic approach to palliative care.
“In addition to traditional home-based services like hospice, home health, and personal care; community-based palliative care is on the rise, as are emerging high-acuity models like hospital-at-home and skilled nursing-at-home programs.”Tim Ashe, chief clinical officer for the post-acute technology firm WellSky.
