A Caregiver Conversation by Carallel: A Guide to Palliative Care

The diagnosis of a serious illness or onset of a chronic condition, can disrupt all aspects of a family’s life. That’s no secret. 

Further complicating matters though is that the initial “disruption” often evolves into something bigger and even more difficult–a “reduction” in the quality of life for the patient and those who care for them. 

But palliative care, a frequently misunderstood (and underutilized) form of medical care can help. That’s why Matt Perrin, Carallel’s Director of Caregiver Engagement will be joined by Sheila Schultz, a Carallel Care Advocate, to discuss it.
