Madelia Community Hospital & Clinic Hosts Palliative Care Discovery Dinner
Seven out of 10 American deaths each year are due to chronic diseases. Palliative care helps manage chronic disease and other serious illnesses. Palliative care customizes treatment to meet the needs of each individual, and is designed to relieve pain, anxiety, shortness of breath, fatigue, nausea, loss of appetite, and other symptoms. It also provides emotional and spiritual support for patients and families.
