The Albert L. Tucker and Elizabeth T. Tucker Foundation recently awarded Providence Health Foundation $10,000 to continue supporting Providence’s Palliative Care Services (PCS).
Providence’s Palliative Care Services are offered to both hospital patients, and patients of the Carroll Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The PCS team provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for patients with advanced illnesses in order to relieve and sooth symptoms of the ailing, while maintaining the highest possible quality of life.
In addition to offering compassionate care to the patient, PCS also provides loving support to the families and friends left behind so they know every measure was extended to ensure their loved one’s last days were filled with comfort. Services include:
•Pain and symptom management
•Psychosocial and spiritual support
•Coordination of community services
•Disease education and advanced care planning
As a long-time advocate in strengthening these services, the Tucker Foundation’s recent charitable funding will help the PCS team increase the number of patients they are able to care for.
