Palliative care focuses on preventing or relieving the symptoms, pain and stress that can accompany a serious, chronic or incurable illness. It can also be used during times of acute illness. By receiving comprehensive treatment and services in concert with those of a primary care physician, a patient can see improvement in their quality of life. Palliative care also provides comfort and support for family members and/or other caregivers.

As a precursor to the November 30 event, West Side Presbyterian Church will be hosting a discussion at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 19. These events are also open to the public. To register for the Sunday discussions, please contact Pat McGlade at or 201-652-1966, x104.
