Introducing the New and Expanded Palliative Care Provider Directory

Looking for palliative care in your area? Here’s good news: has just launched its new, expanded Palliative Care Provider Directory for patients with serious illness, their families, friends and caregivers. The new Provider Directory is specifically designed for users to identify and locate palliative care providers in their area, quickly and easily, in both hospital and community-based settings.

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illness. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is provided by a specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and it can be provided along with curative treatment.

Because of the growth, availability of, and demand for palliative care services beyond the hospital, the new Palliative Care Provider Directory lets users search for palliative care based on the setting where they can get the care: Hospital, Home, Nursing Home and Office/Clinic.

Along with the Provider Directory, the website has also been refreshed and relaunched. is now easier to navigate and provides improved features such as webinars, briefings and multimedia presentations.

The Palliative Care Provider Directory is available at GetPalliativeCare.Org, CAPC’s online resource for patients and families. The website focuses solely on providing information on palliative care from the point of diagnosis.

    My wife has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease six years ago.
    Although she has been under under treatment by several neurologists as they monitor her progression of the disease, they all have done little or nothing about her pain and stiffness that continues to worsen. I feel your services can benefit her overall quality of life. We live in Orlando Fl. Please inform us as to where we can get palliative care in our area. Thank you for your help.
