Palliative Care

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. At Halifax Health, we focus on providing patients with relief from symptoms, pain and stress, and strive to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.

Provided by a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers and other specialists, palliative care offers an extra layer of support in addition to curative treatments to patients of any age and at any stage of serious illness.
