Understanding the Fundamental Differences - Palliative Care vs Hospice Care: Why is there a Choice?

Thursday, February 27, 2020

Both Palliative Care and Hospice Care provide comfort options. The two are alike in so many ways, yet they are different. Catherine Harrington RN will provide us with a basic understanding. She is a RN with over 20 years of experience in certified home care and hospice, both at home and inpatient. She was one of the co-founders of the Pat Roche Hospice Home in Hingham and currently works in Care Coordination at one of the major hospitals in Boston. The presentation may be a good starting point for each of us to be informed when the time may come for either of these care options. A Q & A period will follow the presentation. Sponsored by the South Shore Chapter of Mass Citizens for Life.
