CDPAS is a unique way of receiving home care, where you can choose a person you trust, control how you want them to care for you on a schedule you decide.

A Team Approach to Managing Serious and Chronic Illness
For individuals facing serious illness and their caregivers, it can be challenging to navigate the health care system, make difficult medical decisions and obtain needed services. Chronic illness can often lead to patients cycling in and out of the emergency room or hospital. These are situations where palliative care can provide substantial help to patients and their families.
Palliative care provides case management services and support with the goal of managing symptoms, decreasing hospitalizations and enhancing quality of life. These specialized services strive to assist people who are ill while addressing and alleviating mental, emotional, social and spiritual issues.
There is a common misconception that the terms “palliative care” and “hospice care” are interchangeable. Although the focus is similar, palliative care can be provided at any time during an illness, rather than just at the end of life. With palliative care, patients are often still receiving life-sustaining treatments like chemotherapy or dialysis. Common diseases that palliative care helps manage include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), cancer, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
Palliative care is integral in alleviating the prevalence of pain, shortness of breath, constipation, nausea and anxiety.
At Liberty Home Care, our palliative care program is called Pathways. This team-based approach, led by a nursing case manager, features social work, spiritual care and physician oversight. These cross-disciplinary services are dedicated to elevating the quality of life for patients and caregivers, who form the center of the team. Care providers work to meet the patient’s goals while providing thorough guidance along the complex journey of managing serious and chronic conditions.
The nurse case manager makes monthly visits in the home or assisted living facility to complete an assessment and talk with individuals about what is bothering them. Nurses work with the individual’s current doctors to manage symptoms and keep them out of the emergency room or hospital.
Nurses are also able to spend time answering questions and teaching members about various health topics. This valuable time is a great benefit for patients when their doctors may not be able to spend additional time during a limited office visit. The Pathways nursing support is available 24/7 over the phone.
Pathways offers social work support to guide people through the long term care system and connect them directly to community resources, such as aide support and transportation. Our social workers provide counseling, explain advance care planning considerations and teach coping strategies to ease the incredible stress individuals face during illness and caregiving. Additionally, Pathways provides a spiritual care counselor for those who are interested. This counselor can discuss concepts like one’s values and beliefs, the search for purpose and meaning, and how serious illness can make it difficult to find acceptance and peace.
Palliative care is covered by several major insurance companies and anyone can make a referral by calling 304-1214.
