Advanced Illness Management

Advanced Illness Management (AIM) Home Health Programs

The purpose of the AIM program is to work with patients and their families who are currently under the care of home health but are dealing with the advanced stages of a serious illness. The AIM Care team provides curative and aggressive treatments with the comfort, peace and dignity of palliative care. Established as a bridge between curative and comfort care, the AIM program seeks to meet the needs of the advanced chronically ill patients who currently “fall between the cracks” of hospital, home health and hospice services.

Not all home health agencies provide AIM home health programs, but many community home health agencies do. Your physician, social worker or palliative care professional can assist you in identifying these services in your community.
