The landscape of palliative care is changing. The number of people requiring end-of-life care is growing. Our aging population means a greater demand for programs and services. How we define palliative care has also changed. No longer is it just the last few days or weeks of a person’s life. Palliative care now includes the time from the life-limiting diagnosis through to bereavement. Navigating the medical system can be daunting. Understanding the palliative care options can be confusing whether it’s an individual’s need or that of a family member. As leaders in hospice palliative care, Carpenter Hospice is here to help.
Carpenter Hospice offers community-based programs for people dealing with a life-limiting illness or grief. Our outreach programs provide psychosocial, mental-emotional, and practical support to individuals and their family members, or those who care for them.
