Mount Sinai Beth Israel’s palliative care program offers an added layer of support for you and your family when you need it most. The program treats the emotional, social, and physical problems that may occur during treatment. Palliative care can help you deal with the side effects of the medications and treatment you’re receiving. This care may include physical therapy, medications, counseling, support groups, and much more.
Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illness and their families. The service is available to patients at any age and at any stage of a serious illness along with curative treatment. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is provided by a team of expertly trained doctors, nurses, and specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide extra aid and care.
