Palliative Care and Hospice
PALLIATIVE CARE AND HOSPICE
When a healthcare provider recommends palliative care or hospice, patients and their families need guidance so they can make the best life-affirming decisions possible in their circumstances.
PERINATAL PALLIATIVE CARE
When preborn babies are diagnosed with serious disabling and sometimes life-threatening conditions, parents routinely are pressured to choose abortion. When they refuse to have their babies killed, perinatal (perinatal means around the time of birth) palliative care may be offered to them.
