The Kingfisher, calm and at peace,
nested upon water, quieter of restlessness.

Palliative Care

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care is Transitional Care for anyone battling a serious disease.
Transitional Care is a case management approach to Palliative Care that acts like a “clinic without walls.”
It is both interdisciplinary and holistic. It strives to ease care transitions and promote positive outcomes.

Transitional Care has two focal points:

  • 1. To anticipate, prevent and treat symptoms holistically.
  • 2. To facilitate transitions across care settings, care providers and goals of care.

Halcyon’s approach to Palliative Care is built upon a team of health care professionals working together,
forming a bridge, easing complex transitions.

Interventions are based on risk-based assessments and include:

  • Transitions Counseling
  • Insurance Consultation
  • Symptom Consultation
  • Spiritual Counseling
  • Pharmacy Coordination
  • DME & Home Health Coordination
  • Home Care Coordination
  • Telephonic Support

regard to their ability to pay for services.
