    Palliative care can be provided in a range of settings, for example:

    • the home
    • a hospital
    • an aged care home
    • a hospice.
     
    Most people with a terminal condition prefer to receive care at home, but this will depend on many factors, including:
    • the nature of the illness
    • how much support is available from the person’s family and community
    • whether the person has someone who can care for them.
