Palliative care has to do with end-of-life services that assist those senior citizens that have very serious illnesses. It helps make them more comfortable and in some cases allows for them to avoid living their last days in a hospital bed. This type of service will give peace of mind to families that there is planning for this time in their loved oneâ€™s life.
The expansion of the program at Brightonâ€™s Jewish Senior Life was made possible by the Greater Rochester Health Foundation as well as a donation by Clare and Jerry Rotenberg.
The improvement will entail improving the palliative culture currently provided by Jewish Senior Life and implement an interdisciplinary team of palliative care specialists.
