Chapter 1: Considerations for a home death
Other palliative care options
We were connected with home palliative care, but they wouldn’t enrol her because her death was not predictable.
Whether the decision is to die at home, to die in another facility, or to stay at home for as long as possible and then transfer to a facility in the final days or hours, you should know what some of these options may be. Depending on where you live (province/territory and urban/suburban/rural), these will vary. You can ask your healthcare team for referrals to palliative care professionals and programs.
Some possible options for facilities can include:
- A hospital
- A long-term care facility
- A hospice
