Hospice and palliative care offer an extra layer of supportive care to people with serious illnesses. They can help by treating poorly controlled symptoms, addressing disruptive behaviors, and exploring the patient’s and their family’s needs and wishes. But when are these services the right choice for a seriously ill person? Learn more about the philosophy and practices of Agrace’s hospice and palliative care services, and how they differ. We’ll discuss what makes a person eligible and appropriate for hospice or palliative care, and explain the guidelines for and process of making a referral to Agrace. Presented by Molly Dean, Senior Outreach Liaison at Agrace HospiceCare.
