Community Palliative Care
The Community Palliative Care team visits take place in the clinic or wherever you live, such as a long-term care facility, assisted living facility or at home. The goals of Community Palliative Care are to manage your pain, help you make important decisions about your healthcare goals and support your family (in your current residence).
Your illness does not always go away when you leave the hospital. That's why the Palliative Care team continues helping you manage your life along with your illness outside of the hospital. We use your care plan to guide you along a course of action while supporting you and your family.
Palliative Care will ensure your voice is heard by assisting in communication between your specialists to manage the complex decisions you must make with each.
