Myth: Palliative care can only be provided in a hospital or hospice setting.

Fact: palliative care can be provided anywhere a patient needs it. Care can be provided at home, in a lodge, supportive living or long term care setting. Another myth might be that these services are only available in a larger urban center, and these services are available in the Lakeland area! If you or someone you know needs to access the home care services, you can self refer. Just contact the community care access line (CCA) at 1-855-371-4122.
