Palliative Care

Palliative Care is an indispensable component of the care provided at Park Manor Care. Several staff and volunteers are presently trained in this area and endeavor to meet the needs of residents and their families facing the inevitable issues surrounding death and dying.

You held my hand...I felt your strength. I was not alone.
