This hospital has designated palliative beds which may be available to individuals who require admission to acute care with acute palliative needs. If a palliative designated bed in acute care is not available the individual will still receive appropriate palliative care. Palliative care services include the management of pain and other symptoms as well as social, emotional, spiritual, and practical support. The social worker will connect palliative patients and their caregivers to suitable community services (e.g. counseling support, financial services, etc.). She will also assist with organizing personal directives, financial, and personal affairs and will visit families in their home, facilitate family conferences and lend a supportive, listening ear.
