AIM Palliative Home Health: Your Hospice Alternative
Sometimes there’s no medicine better than hope, and no comfort more than home — especially when you or a loved one is facing a terminal illness. The AIM Palliative Home Health team is an in-home alternative that meets hospice criteria for certified hospice and palliative care professionals, and we bring our compassion and expertise to you. AIM Home Health provides in-home palliative care, including pain management, and positive support for patients who continue to actively fight an illness, even during late phases that require interventional pain management, while maintaining hope and living life to its fullest.
As part of The Carpenter Health Network’s continuum of care, AIM Palliative Home Health provides specialized care according to individuals’ evolving needs; and we treat each and every one of our patients with dignity and compassion. Our team serves patients across Louisiana and Southeast Texas.
