Arizona Palliative Home Care
Many people with late-stage chronic illness struggle with daily living and disease management. They may be seeing several physicians, pursuing curative treatment, coping with painful side effects and taking multiple medications. Sometimes they may feel like they’re running on a treadmill and wonder where they’re headed.
Arizona Palliative Home Care (AZPHC) was created as an anchor for these people. Our nurses and social workers provide case coordination services and education to patients and families. We work closely with patients’ physicians. Services are provided wherever the patient lives – at home, a group home, an assisted living or skilled nursing care facility.
Palliative Care - focuses on the patient’s physical, psychological and spiritual needs. The goal is achieving the best quality of life available by relieving suffering and controlling pain and symptoms. The patient isn’t ready for hospice but could be within two years.
Senior Placement Service - a referral service to help family caregivers find suitable living arrangements for their loved ones. Click here for more information.
Palliative Care for Dementia – for people with dementia who are not yet eligible for hospice services.
