AuthoraCare - Greensboro
Our patients are always the author of their life story. During a challenging illness, AuthoraCare Collective helps them author more moments that matter, regardless of the stage of their illness or condition.
Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. Through this consultation service, we can help patients and families achieve better quality of life by assisting with advance care planning, relieving symptoms of the serious illness and establishing goals of care. AuthoraCare’s palliative care team of experts includes board-certified nurse practitioners, a nurse clinical navigator, social worker, program coordinator and physician medical director. They will offer expert guidance at every step.
Hospice is expert, in-home medical care for people who are no longer seeking a cure for their advanced illness; instead, hospice focuses on achieving comfort for mind, body and spirit.
With pain and symptoms well managed, hospice patients are often able to enjoy more precious, quality time doing what they love. Care is not reserved just for the patient, however; hospice is unique in that it addresses emotional well-being and spiritual peace for the entire family as well. With AuthoraCare, each patient and family has a whole team of experts to guide care for mind, body and spirit. This interdisciplinary team includes the attending physician, hospice physician, registered nurses, hospice aides, volunteers, a social worker, a chaplain and a bereavement counselor.
