Cardiac Special Care

The Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center has developed an innovative cardiac program for people with advanced cardiac disease. The Cardiac Special Care Program has been designed to meet the special needs of advanced-stage cardiac patients and their families by helping them to maintain both function and quality of life. The goals of the Cardiac Special Care Program are to provide excellence in care to the patient, increase family/caregiver confidence and coping, as well as help the patient accomplish important personal goals.

The Cardiac Special Care Program is available in the patients place of residence. This includes thier home, assisted living or nursing home. The specially-trained staff of Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center works in collaboration with the patient’s primary care physician and with BHHPCC’s medical directors.

Many patients with end-stage chronic illnesses do not have access to community resources because of the uncertainty of their illness. Adequate physical and psychosocial support is very important for anyone coping with the social isolation and burden of a chronic progressive illness like advanced cardiac disease. We at The Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center, have incorporated that important approach into the model of The Cardiac Special Care Program.
