Palliative care is a interdisciplinary speciality. Palliative Innovations collaborates with community based mental health specialists and chaplains to address the holistic needs of the client and family. Everyone on our team has one goal in mind--to help you advocate for the care you want. We listen to your story and clarify your wishes for care.
