Gallagher Home Health Services, another company within the Gallagher family, provides Palliative Home Health Care Services, including Nursing, Home Health Aides, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy. Palliative Care is symptom management for patients still seeking curative treatment. They can receive these services at any time during an illness. Hospice is also symptom management; however, these services occur when a patient has a life limiting diagnosis and is no longer seeking curative treatment, but comfort. An important note to call out is that hospice includes palliative care, but not all palliative care is hospice.
Gallagher Home Health has a Board Certified Palliative Care physician and team that can visit home health patients in need of palliative care.
