Palliative care at home

I am wondering how I could proceed with palliative care at home as an occupational therapist.Palliative care means total care for people who can no longer be cured because of cancer, an intractable disease and so on. Recently the number of people who need palliative care at home is increasing rapidly in our community.Some patients suffer mental disease ,especially depression, as a result of Long-term hospitalization. We home visiting medical care staff should care for both physical and mental problems of patients. we should help patients have a good quality of life at home.
