Crossroads of Care: Managing Serious Illness in the Home

Join your colleagues in hospice and palliative care, from Illinois and the surrounding areas, for the free Crossroads of Care learning event series sponsored by the Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI). During the sessions, you will discover the benefits of home-based primary and palliative care, and how to successfully bring them together as a full-service solution for managing complex illness and chronic disease.

Taking place through March 2024, the goal of the series is to provide more integrated home-centered care to homebound and home-limited patients in Illinois. More than 125 hospice and palliative care programs in 13 Illinois counties are being invited.
