For Harold, palliative care meant he was “coming back home”

Hugh Adami, The Ottawa Citizen

Harold almost didn’t get that (palliative) care because he lived in Dunrobin, and the handful of doctors who do palliative house calls really only have the time and resources to serve patients in the urban Ottawa area. Josina was exhausted and in tears when she called the Citizen in March 2010. She hadn’t had a decent sleep in months and had no one to turn to, especially at night, for advice on dealing with Harold’s pain.
