You Need to Know More About
HopeHealth is a leading provider of hospice and palliative care in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. Director of Palliative Care and Medical Director Jennifer Ritzau (right) wrote an opinion piece for
Providence Business News on the all too often unknown benefits of palliative care.
HopeHealth’s palliative care program provides support to families and patients struggling with the burden of serious, and often long-term, illness.
“Palliative care is not for those who are giving up – rather, it’s for those who want to live longer, better lives, despite their illness,” writes Dr. Ritzau. “It should be started as soon as patients are diagnosed with a serious, life-threatening illness, because there is so much we can do to help.”
