Palliative care and people living in group homes

Background

When people who live in disability group homes are diagnosed with a terminal illness, this poses some challenges for both the staff in group homes and palliative care staff. The SMRPCC Disability Program aims to connect relevant services and provide training and resources to achieve the best outcomes for residents and health professionals alike.
