Inpatient Palliative Care

Inpatient Palliative Care

At White Plains Center for Nursing Care, our palliative care program/comfort measures only is designed to support individual in the final stages of their lives. Our mission is to maintain the dignity of our patients and ensure they live each day in the most comfortable and pain-free manner possible. In addition to honoring the wishes of the patients, we strive to provide families with the supports they may need during this time.

We recommend palliative care for individuals who have a terminal illness, anticipate having 6 months or less to live, and no longer desire to pursue treatments aimed at prolonging life. Our team takes an interdisciplinary approach to palliative care by including physicians, nurses, therapists and spiritual advisors in the coordination of each patient’s care. In interacting with patients, we are sensitive of their values and use evidence-based practices to address their physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual needs.

Our palliative care program includes:

  • Nursing Care
  • Pain and Symptom Management
  • Spiritual Care
  • Social Work Services
  • Grief and loss counseling
