In-Home Palliative Care

For patients living with a serious illness or chronic condition, home health may be supplemented with palliative care. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Sometimes, it’s used in conjunction with treatments intended to cure. The kind of care you receive is dependent upon your goals of care.

Palliative care providers work with your primary care doctor and your specialists to make sure your medical care matches your goals for your body, mind and spirit. You can also ask them to help you make future plans around your health and medical care. You may work with palliative care providers in your doctor’s office, your home, a hospital, a nursing home or hospice.
