Medical Care

Doctors and nurses trained in comfort care.

To help your loved one maintain the greatest comfort and quality of life possible, we feature a team of medical experts trained specifically in hospice and palliative care, working beside you at every step. Our focus is to treat the person, not the disease.

This specialized treatment starts with our Medical Director, Dr. Thomas Putnam, working closely with your loved one’s primary care physician. Dr. Putnam is the only board-certified palliative care physician in Chautauqua County and is widely respected for his special training. Together with other members of our team, your loved one and family, plus the primary care physician, we create a customized care plan for your loved one’s exact situation.

The care plan for your loved one is coordinated by our Registered Nurse Case Manager. Our nurses monitor symptoms and vital signs, administer medications, change dressings and tend to your loved one’s unique medical needs.
