Types of care available
There are generally three main types of Palliative Care. Your loved one can receive: Hospital Care; Hospice Care; or Home Care. With Hospital and Hospice Care, your loved one stays in the hospital or hospice, where family can come to visit, and is cared for by health care professionals. With Home Care, the family takes care of the patient at home, with the help of visiting nurses and health care professionals, and medical equipment as needed (hospital bed, oxygen, etc.).
There are also many types of community services available. To check out these services and how to get in contact with them, go to the Resources section of this Web site.
