Bridgeway Palliative Care
Bridging the Way to Comfort & Support
If you or a loved one is facing a serious or terminal illness, you may be feeling anxious or isolated. At Bridgeway, we recognize that chronic illness is taxing on both the patient and the caregiver. While traditional medicine can provide basic care, it is often focused on the disease process and not the patient as a whole. We believe that Palliative Medicine with emphasis on quality of life is a standard of care that every patient deserves. At Bridgeway Palliative Care, we treat each and every one of our patients as if they were members of our own family.
While some palliative care outpatient clinics provide the basic services necessary to manage the patient’s care, our family-owned program aims to provide support and comfort to both the patient and their loved ones in the familiar setting of their own home. To learn more, please reach out to our offices at your earliest convenience by calling (678) 878-2950.
