This chapter discusses issues in the provision of palliative care to homeless people. Palliative care provision must be sufficiently flexible to accommodate complex needs. In the UK, the relative independence of many hospices allows for a person-centred approach that can be tailored for those who are homeless. One group of homeless people suggested a dedicated half-way house shelter, staffed twenty-four hours a day, to provide a safe convalescent environment on leaving hospital.
