Symptom Management & Increased Patient Comfort

Symptom management addresses your loved one’s pain and other symptoms of terminal illness, providing increased comfort. Indiana University Health Hospice provides excellent palliative (symptom-reducing) care for a higher level of physical comfort. We offer comprehensive services to help with other physical, emotional and spiritual concerns that may arise during your loved one’s life-limiting illness.

Your loved one’s needs and preferences guide our care. Pain relief is an important aspect of palliative care, but we also support the patient with treatment for symptoms such as nausea and difficulty breathing. We relieve as much discomfort and physical stress as possible, providing dignity for your loved one and enabling him or her to make the most of their time with family.
