Agrace provides in-home palliative care consultations to identify the medical, emotional and social issues that need to be addressed to improve a patient’s quality of life during a serious illness. The consultation begins with an assessment visit from an Agrace nurse practitioner or physician, and may also include up to two follow-up visits, depending on your needs.
Who could be helped by a palliative care consultation?
People of any age who are struggling with physical and emotional challenges related toANY serious illness, including (but not limited to) cancer; diseases of the heart, liver, kidneys or lungs; rheumatoid arthritis; lupus; ALS, multiple sclerosis; Parkinson’s disease, stroke and dementia. The service can be provided wherever a person calls home, including in a long-term care facility.
How do I access this care?
The first step is to contact Agrace. Your health care provider can make a referral to Agrace for you, or you can call Agrace directly at (800) 930-2770 to request a palliative care consultation visit.
What happens during the assessment?
An Agrace nurse practitioner or physician will visit you* to have an open discussion about your condition. We’ll conduct a physical exam, taking time to fully understand your symptoms, and how medications and other treatments are working. We will ask about your goals for care and learn what’s interfering with your ability to meet those goals.
What happens after the assessment visit?
Based on what we learn at the assessment visit, Agrace will make recommendations about ways to improve your physical comfort and relieve your stress. We’ll share our ideas with you and your health care provider; then you and your doctor can use Agrace’s findings to consider changes that may help you meet your goals.
If medically necessary, Agrace may provide up to two follow-up visits to help you make the changes you and your health care provider agree upon.
Who pays for this service?
Medicare, Medicaid and most insurers offer coverage for the consultation. Funds are available through Agrace to cover patients who qualify based on financial need; you can learn more about Agrace’s Care for All charitable care program here.
