After a lot of issues with my grandma's doctors and hospitals I finally got in touch with a social worker who works with people like us. He is having the hospital check out grandma and after being checked out by one of their doctors, he explained that he is referring us for an evaluation for palliative care. I'm still not 100% positive about what that is, but I'm scared that she's going to be turned away because that seems to be the trend with these doctors. Any help is good help at this point. Am I wrong to be worried? What is palliative care exactly?
