The palliative care team at Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center provides care and comfort to patients with serious illness and their families. They help to alleviate physical, emotional and spiritual pain and suffering, custom-tailored for each patient, in a warm and caring environment.
Our goal is aggressive management of symptoms—such as pain, shortness of breath, nausea, difficulty sleeping and others—to relieve suffering, while also offering support and resources to improve quality of life. Unlike hospice care, palliative care is available at any stage of an illness, even during treatments aimed at a cure. Our team works with both the patient and the family to guide them through this life-changing time.
