The Caregiver Journey: Palliative Care and Hospice–What’s the Difference and How Can They Help?

Palliative care and hospice care have many similarities and share the common objective of relieving pain and symptoms. Yet there are key differences for us to be aware of as caregivers.

In this Caregiver Journey Webinar, Matt Perrin and Mary Pat Scoltock from Carallel demystify palliative and hospice care. They discuss the differences, help you understand when and how each can help, and share questions to ask when considering palliative or hospice care.
