WHY PALLIATIVE CARE?

Regardless of age and stage of the disease process, palliative care programs focus on quality of life and comfort and can be coordinated along with curative treatments.  When end of life care is required, teams at Barbourville Health & Rehabilitation Center work in partnership with local hospice services to provide around-the-clock compassionate care with dignity and comfort being of the utmost importance.
