The main goal of palliative care in your home is improved quality of life. Being at home is more comfortable, convenient, and less stressful, particularly when you are not feeling your best. The SilverStone Palliative Care program is a community-based program, providing specialty level palliative care services to patients living at home. The goal is to beinclusive enough of team members and allow flexibility of follow-up that meetsthe patients’ needs, provides continuity, efficiency, and does not require the MD as the sole point of contact, although physician oversight will remainfor every patient.
