A patient and family centered approach to living with serious illness
Palliative care addresses the complex physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs that may accompany your illness and treatment.
At Mayo Clinic Health System, our palliative care team helps you live well in the face of physical changes and personal challenges, while supporting the people you love, and who love you.
Since no two people are alike, we work closely with you and your family to make living arrangements better for you. We talk honestly, as often as necessary, about ways to improve your life: physically, emotionally and spiritually. Then we help to make those things happen.
