Hospice Care is about Quality of Life
Hospice palliative care is an approach to care that aims to reduce suffering and improve quality of life for people who are living with a life-limiting illness. It is the relief of suffering through the provision of pain and symptom management, as well as psychological, social, emotional, spiritual and practical support.
Hospice palliative care places the individual receiving care and their family at the centre of decision making. We provide individualized care, guided by the unique needs and goals of each person. These goals are identified through initial and ongoing exploration of what is important to the individual and their family. Individual centered care affords respect, dignity and choice.
The Community Program provides the following services:
– Care Coordination and Counselling
– Palliative Physician Care
– Spiritual Care
– Wellness Day Program
