Palliative Care Services

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care is a specialty offered to any patient with a complex, serious or advanced illness, including congestive heart failure, COPD, kidney failure, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ALS and many more. Harrington offers comprehensive care focused on improving the quality of a patient's life, and reducing the suffering or distress. Our Palliative Care team consists of nurses, physicians, dieticians, social workers and others who are working together to provide you with advanced support systems to manage difficult symptoms.

Harrington is proud to offer palliative care services through our Cancer Center at Harrington office - located at 55 Sayles Street in Southbridge. We are a complete, comprehensive clinic with specialized physicians, clinical social workers, counselors and other professionals. Our goal is to provide you with the tools and support you need to improve your quality of life.

Is Palliative Care the same thing as Hospice?

No. Palliative care supports patients and families managing difficult symptoms or advanced illnesses. No matter where you are in your illness palliative care is available to provide comfort to your family.
