Palliative Care vs Hospice Care- what we learned
Mar 23, 2021 Season 2 Episode 13

This week we try to help you all understand  the difference between Palliative Care vs Hospice Care. Phyllis Banks came back to share with us her experience with each as she cared for her husband Bob who had LBD and has since passed. These two types of care can be very confusing and even after we recorded, we learned more. For me in NJ, I did not have to get his primary dr. to recommend. I just made a call and said Jim has LBD. We also learned each state may be different so make those calls ya'll.
LBD diagnosis qualifies for palliative care. Be that squeaky wheel for your loved one or for yourself.
