Outpatient Palliative Care
Please call UnityPoint Health - Des Moines Home Care for more information.
Ask your physician for a Palliative Care referral.
The Outpatient Palliative Care team makes visits to you wherever you
live, such as a long-term care facility, assisted living facility or at
home. The goals of Outpatient Palliative Care are to manage your pain,
help you make important decisions about your healthcare goals and
support your family in your current residence.
Your illness does not always go away when you leave the hospital.
That's why the Palliative Care team continues helping you manage your
life along with your illness outside of the hospital. We use your care
plan to guide you along a course of action while supporting you and your
Palliative Care will ensure your voice is heard by assisting in
communication between your specialists to manage the complex decisions
you must make with each.
