Palliative care at Lynnwood

Palliative care is an interdisciplinary medical caregiving approach aimed at optimizing the quality of life and mitigating suffering among people with serious, complex, and often terminal illnesses.

At Lynnmed our approach is to improve the quality of life of patients and their families who are facing problems with life-threatening illnesses. We focus on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness through care, based on the needs of the patient, not on the patient’s prognosis.  Our care team communicates with all of your doctors so that everyone is on the same page.  We support the patient and their family every step of the way.

The caring attitude involves sensitivity, empathy, and compassion and demonstrates concern for the patient and good communication between all the health care professionals and family involved in a patient’s care.
