The Montefiore Palliative Care (PCARE) service looks to provide patients and their families with emotional and spiritual support and improve quality of life. Our Alternatives for Pain Relief and Improved Living program (APRIL) also offers complementary services like acupuncture treatments, pain-management seminars and bereavement support groups.
