Palliative Wellness Center Improves Quality of Life for Those with Chronic/Serious Conditions
Enduring a serious or chronic illness is not just physically draining, it is also emotionally and spiritually challenging for everyone involved. The Angelic Health Palliative Wellness Center, in Wenonah, found that patients were missing something and created a program to fill that gap. The center offers a holistic balance of traditional and alternative care options for those with serious or chronic conditions, such as chronic pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cancer or heart disease. These offerings embrace the connection between mind, body and spirit.
Not a spa, this is a unique wellness center to help those with chronic conditions, or undergoing treatment for a serious illness, maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patients can choose from a selection of therapeutic massage, reiki, private yoga, meditation, nutrition, aromatherapy, acupuncture and counseling services to improve their well-being both physically and emotionally. Some services may be covered by insurance.
A nurse practitioner will evaluate a patient clinically and discuss the patient’s goals and align services that can best serve his or her healthcare needs, prescribe medications to manage the patient’s symptoms, order labs and tests when needed, and collaborate with the patient’s other healthcare providers. The center also evaluates patients for medicinal marijuana as part of the treatment plan.Location: 1050 Mantua Pike (Plaza 601).
