Caring for a loved one with a serious illness is more difficult than you imagined. You are not alone. Call 716-338-0033 and let us help.

CHPC's Palliative Care

Chautauqua Hospice & Palliative Care provides an extra layer of support to your loved one’s medical care, at any stage in a serious illness, whatever the diagnosis. Our home-based care is focused on relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of the illness – and works together with your loved one’s curative treatments. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family by keeping your loved one comfortable and out of the hospital.

Here’s what you can expect from Palliative Care:

  • Fewer unplanned hospitalizations and emergency room visits
  • In-home care
  • Caregiver support and training
  • Improved quality of life
  • Greater understanding of the illness, symptoms and care options

The John A. and Oscar Johnson Palliative Care Program of Chautauqua County has been made possible through the support of the Johnson Foundation and it is dedicated in memory of John A. and Oscar Johnson.

Palliative vs Hospice

Understanding hospice and palliative care can be confusing. The main focus of each is providing comfort and easing symptoms of serious illnesses. The main difference is that hospice care is typically reserved for those with less than six months to live.

Palliative vs Hospice

It helps to understand that hospice care is actually a part of palliative care. So hospice care is always palliative, but palliative care isn’t always hospice.
