In home palliative care is currently only available to Housecall Providers patients and offers support to individuals when more care than a house call is needed. Led by the primary care provider, palliative care offers nursing, social work and spiritual care to further meet the needs of our primary care patients.
“The staff of Housecall Providers made it so easy for us. If a medication needed tweaking, or we thought my mother-in-law might have an infection-right away, they were on it.”
~ Marilyn Fink
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care focuses on managing pain and discomfort while relieving symptoms that may cause suffering.
Our palliative care team will come to you while working closely with your primary care provider to reduce the physical and emotional burdens of illnesses.
Who Provides Palliative Care?
Similar to hospice, palliative care is provided by an interdisciplinary team for a holistic approach: primary care provider, nurse, social worker and a chaplain.
What Type of Care and Support Should I Expect as a Patient?

Our primary care providers will work with you or your family/caregiver to decide if palliative care is appropriate for you.
