Palliative Care

Palliative services are available at Golden for patients in all disease stages, including those undergoing treatment for curable illnesses and those living with chronic diseases. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists to provide an extra layer of support. In addition, we focus on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness — whatever the prognosis.

Hospice Care

Hospice services are available at Golden to provide end-of-life care when the patient's condition is considered terminal and the patient is no longer receiving curative treatment. Our hospice team works with patients to manage pain and symptoms so that their remaining time may be spent in peace and dignity. At Golden we are dedicated to quality of life and we offer a support system of professional staff who assist the patient and their family in meeting their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. We also stress the importance of human needs that go beyond the physical care of the patient.
