Relieving Your Pain, Stress, & Anxiety

Samaritan’s palliative team helps you recover from your illness by relieving symptoms—such as pain, anxiety, nausea, or loss of appetite—as you undergo sometimes difficult medical treatments or procedures, such as surgery or chemotherapy.

Working with Your Healthcare Providers 

Our team works with your personal physician’s treatment plan – we do not replace them. Board certified in palliative care, Samaritan experts provide an extra layer of support. They care for you even while other doctors work to try to cure your illness. In other words: we help manage your symptoms and discomforts while you and your primary doctors work toward a cure.

Answering, Explaining, Listening 

The South NJ palliative care team will take the time to explain your illness. We’ll answer your questions about the various treatment options available to you and how those treatments may affect your quality of life. Just as importantly, we’ll also listen to what matters most to you at each stage of illness, and work to match your care plan with the goals and desired outcomes you’ve shared.

Inpatient and Outpatient Palliative Consultations

In collaboration with other physicians on your healthcare team, our board-certified physicians and palliative-trained nurse practitioners provide inpatient and outpatient consultations in settings across South Jersey – including doctor’s offices, your home, or other care facilities.

Help Completing Advance Directives

As experts, we can also help in completing advance directives such as the Physician’s Order for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST), a prescription for the care you would want or not want should you be unable to speak for yourself. It can be overwhelming for family members to make healthcare decisions when there is no verbal or written plan to follow. By completing the POLST form, you are offering a road map for family members to assist them in carrying out your wishes.

Assistance with complex medical decisions.

Even when a family member has a POLST form or other advance directive, there may be situations not specifically addressed or a family member may feel conflicted in making a decision. Samaritan is there to assist with such decisions.
