Palliative care was the worst experience in our lives. My wife was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Had a small issue so we dropped by an emergency room at the medical facility where her care was provided. In the ER room, while waiting for medical oncologist to arrive, two ladies walked in with white coats and said "have you decided how you want to die?" Turns out they were 'palliative care" people who had taken it on themselves to be helpful or whatever...in their miinds. Went downhill rapidly from there and I threw them out. Extremely upsetting and damaging.
