If you or your loved one is hospitalized, a Palliative Care professional can be of significant assistance to you and the hospital team with helping to discuss and define goals and values. The team can be very helpful especially when patients and families feel frustrated, angry and unclear about their treatment options and direction of their care. If the hospital has a Palliative Care Team, you can request a Palliative Care Team consultation. Some hospitals do not have a Palliative Care Team but have very knowledgeable social workers, chaplains, case managers and discharge planners.
Please contact us if you need assistance in finding a Palliative Care provider.
