Palliative and hospice care are specialties that offer support, comfort, and guidance for patients with life-limiting or terminal illnesses. While they share similarities, palliative and hospice care have different goals:
Palliative care manages uncomfortable symptoms and side effects at any point during a life-limiting illness. The team at Mobile Doctor Medical Clinic provides comprehensive palliative care from the moment a patient receives a diagnosis through end-of-life care.
Hospice care focuses on providing comfort for patients at the end of life. While patients in palliative care may still undergo curative treatments, hospice prioritizes pain relief, symptom management, and emotional support.
Mobile Doctor Medical Clinic offers comprehensive palliative and hospice care, including mobile services and house calls.
Palliative and hospice care are individualized services that the team tailors to each patient’s specific needs. These services may include:
Legal capacity evaluations are comprehensive assessments that help determine patients’ ability to make informed decisions regarding their physical and mental health care.
Entering palliative and hospice care is an emotional experience for most patients. The Mobile Doctor Medical Clinic team can help patients navigate these changes and help set their expectations. With extensive experience caring for patients, the team offers unparalleled comfort and support.

Palliative and hospice care can help individuals with life-limiting illnesses, such as cancer or heart failure, get the care they need in a comfortable environment. Most patients in these settings have terminal diagnoses with a life expectancy of six months or less.
