What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is an interdisciplinary end-of-life care to our residents and families. We provide a team of professionals to manage any pain and symptoms that the resident may experience. 


Our Goal is to help our residents maintain quality of life, focusing on comfort, psychosocial, and spiritual needs as they navigate through their end-of-life journey. 


Who makes up the Palliative Care Team?

Physicians, nurses, social workers, certified nursing assistants, dietary & activities personnel, clergy, volunteers, therapist, and a team secretary. 


Safe Harbor, the facility’s palliative care program provides the following:

  • Physician directed care
  • Professional care provided by nurses
  • Social work and counseling services
  • Certified nursing assistants
  • Clergy
  • Occupational & speech therapy
  • Supplies and equipment
  • Support for residents and their loved ones
  • Volunteer assistance
  • Bereavement follow-up for the family
  • Consultations about ethical issues
  • Assistance in obtaining community resources if the resident is able to be discharged to home


Are residents/MPOAs allowed to continue making decisions regarding their plan of care?

Yes. The Safe Harbor Team meets weekly to ensure that the residents are provided palliative care with dignity, respect, and honor during their voyage at the end of life. 


How can a referral be made?

Contact Grant Rehabilitation and Care Center and our staff will work closely with your physician to determine eligibility.
