Palliative Care

When active treatment is no longer the focus, Comfort Care concentrates on palliative measures aimed at relieving symptoms and supporting patients and families.

The goals of palliative care are to reduce emotional and physical suffering and improve the quality of life for a seriously ill person, their family and loved ones. Schmitt Woodland Hills offers a team approach to help families through the medical, emotional, physical and spiritual journey that end of life brings.
