Southern Tier provides home care nursing services - home health aides services - training for family members in patient care - management of pain & other distressing symptoms (Palliative Care) - services of specially trained volunteers - arrangement for short-term hospital care when needed - necessary medical equipment & supplies - dietary & other consultations - emotional and spiritual support - bereavement counseling for the family. Palliative treatment would be conducted when 'curative' treatments (surgery, radiation/chemotherapy or procedures done to cure, arrest disease or simply to prolong life) have been exhausted or no longer desired. This could be a part of our normal hospice care. However where the disease is not terminal, an individual could qualify for a specific palliative or 'symptom management' care program.
