Living life more comfortably. Palliate means "to ease" and at Sanford's Palliative Care Unit, that is exactly what we do. We aim to ease your worries, stress, feelings of despair and pain that can be physical, spiritual and emotional. We work with you to help provide relief from distressing symptoms, including pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite or problems with sleep. Our compassionate, professional care is here to make life better.
