The ResolutionCare Blog is inspired by our belief that “Dying isn’t a medical experience; it’s a human experience.” Through our experience in providing medical, social, and spiritual care for those coping with serious illness and their families, our amazing team works every day to provide comprehensive, compassionate palliative care to those who need us. At ResolutionCare, everyone brings their whole self to their work. And it is through our work that we are privileged to see stories of great reconciliation, transcendence, existential fear, belief, connection, courage, and beauty unfolding before our eyes every day. We are grateful to play a part in alleviating suffering and comforting those in our care, medically, spiritually and socially. The ResolutionCare Blog is our attempt to share some of these stories in a way that loves, honors, and respects those in our care.

We work hard to protect and respect the right to privacy of people we serve. Though stories are true, the names, details, locations and images may be changed where necessary to protect the identities of our palliative care recipients.
