Appalachian Regional Healthcare System and Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care have developed a clinical collaborative agreement to provide AIM: Advanced Illness Management in the High Country.

Advanced Illness Management - Appalachian Regional Healthcare System and Caldwell Hospice and Palliative CarePalliative care is a medical specialty for people affected by serious illness, at any point in the illness, and alongside treatments meant to cure. With its focus on comfort and better quality of life, AIM can relieve or ease such symptoms as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, and difficulty sleeping, but that is not all the palliative program offers. With the combined support of their physician and Caldwell Hospice's AIM team, patients can improve their ability to tolerate medical treatments and participate in choosing their plans of care.

The team—physician, nurse practitioner, and nurse, with medical social worker and chaplain support, when needed—provides services in patients' homes, in long-term-care facilities, or in hospitals to treat their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

To learn more about AIM and whether you might benefit from palliative care, talk with your physician or call (828) 754-0101 or, in Ashe County, 844-MY-JOURNEY.
