Palliative Care

Palliative care is based on you or your loved ones needs. We are committed to improving the quality of life of those dealing with serious illness

Where can I receive Palliative Care services?

  • In your home through our Homeward Bound program.
  • At two Hudson Headwaters locations: West Mountain Health Services Building 1A and Warrensburg Health Center.
  • Via Telehealth if you don’t live in the Greater Glens Falls area.
  • In several area nursing homes in the Greater Glens Falls region.

Our goal is to provide specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. These illnesses include COPD, congestive heart failure, kidney disease, cancer, Parkinson’s disease or dementia. Palliative care is offered to patients at any stage of an illness.

What else can I or my loved ones expect in the program?

  • Help managing the stress of a serious illness.
  • Provide support and information so that you can decide what treatments are right for you.
  • Help managing symptoms that affect daily life.
  • Help coordinating care between all members of your health care team (specialists, caseworkers, etc.).
  • Help finding support services to assist you in your home (necessary medical equipment, home health care, etc.).
  • Help completing advance care planning such as health care proxy or MOLST forms.

If you feel that any of the above services could help you or your loved ones, please talk with your Hudson Headwaters primary care provider to see if Palliative Care is right for you.
