Palliative Care at Home
Palliative care extends beyond the hospital setting to include care provided in the home or in other settings. This may include home visits by clinicians from home health agencies.
One of the most important agencies in the provision of palliative care at home is hospice. You may wish to discuss the inclusion of hospice in your care with your physician and other health care professionals.
The Palliative Care Team will work closely with the hospice in your area to ensure you receive excellent palliative care together with ongoing care through UW Health.
