Torrance Memorial Medical Center offers palliative care programs to improve quality of life and decrease suffering for patients with serious, chronic or life-threatening illness.

Many people don’t realize that the term “palliative care” is not the same as end-of-life care. Palliative care refers to comfort measures, care that is focused on helping you feel better and suffer less. Anyone who has a serious or life-threatening illness can benefit from palliative care, either to treat symptoms of the disease, such as pain or shortness of breath, or to ease the side effects of treatment, such as fatigue or nausea.

Our palliative care professionals also coordinate palliative care services with other programs at Torrance Memorial, including hospice care and home health services.
