Crossroads Palliative Care was established to help patients and families navigate their disease progression as well as the healthcare system. Our goal is to assist the patient and family in making timely and educated decisions in an effort to reduce the burden of symptoms while providing peace and comfort.  We provide three types of care in the home setting which include nursing (RN/LPN) clinical education and guidance, social work support, and spiritual support through our chaplain.


The Palliative Care Foundation of Baton Rouge helps to fund the growing needs of patients, families, and the community by helping provide services to those who are unable to meet all of the financial burdens associated with hospice care. Our goal is to never turn a patient away due to their inability to pay. We also believe in educating the public on hospice and palliative care while also acting as advocates for these pateints.
