The palliative home care service consists of a multidisciplinary team of medical, nursing, medical social workers, psychologist and volunteers that provides home visits, outpatient clinics and telephone consultations for patients in their own homes. The aim is to maximize the patients' quality of life and lessen their suffering so that both the patients and their relatives are able to treasure the remaining days with hope and meaning.
