Our Advanced Illness Management (AIM) Home-Based Palliative Care program focuses on patients who have difficulty leaving their homes due to serious chronic conditions.

What You Need to Know About Our Advanced Illness Management (AIM) Program
We take a holistic approach to care.
This means we prioritize the patient's full self—from physical abilities and psychological implications to social symptoms and everything in between.
We create a customized care plan.
Pain management and symptom management are not one-size-fits-all.
We work with the patient and their family to determine what's best for them.
It's a team effort.
Along with creating a customized care plan, that also means we also build a team specific to the patient's needs, and we coordinate and work together seamlessly so you don't have to worry about it. Learn more about some of our team members.

We're Here for the Whole Family
We support the patient, their loved ones and their caregivers.
Caregiving for a family member can be rewarding, but it certainly doesn't come without its own set of challenges. We want to provide you with the resources and support you need to succeed in this role and effectively help your loved one.
Thank you to the Charless Foundation, a component of the St. Louis Community Foundation, for their generous support of the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater St Louis Advanced Illness Management Palliative Care Program.
