P: (401) 737-7000, ext. 34893
In addition to routine and emergency health and wellness services, Kent Hospital and Care New England offer a variety of specialty programs. Our Geriatric Consultation Team works collaboratively with the providers in a number of inpatient and outpatient specialty programs to ensure that older adult patients are receiving the best care possible. The team will work collaboratively with each patient’s primary care provider to develop appropriate treatment plans both in the outpatient and inpatient settings, as well as in the patient’s home or skilled nursing facility.
Palliative Care ProgramPalliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses given at the same time as other medical therapies, including curative treatments. This care focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness to improve the quality of life for both the patient and his or her family.
In 2012, Care New England joined a national initiative, The Conversation Project, along with 10 other pioneering organizations, to support an effort by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) to better prepare health care providers to receive and respect patients’ wishes about end-of-life care. Care New England has incorporated many principles of The Conversation Project, which strives to engage with patients to better understand what matters most to them as they face serious medical illness while helping them achieve their personal goals.
