Palliative Care

Palliative care is provided to individuals who are living with a life threatening illness when the focus of care has turned from that of cure to comfort. Pain and symptom management become paramount and attention is given to the quality of the life remaining rather than trying to extend the time of living.

Palliative care is multidisciplinary in its approach. The team is led first by the individual and their family, and may include the physician, nurse, personal support worker, hospital chaplain or clergy, social worker, dietitian, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, respiratory therapist, speech and language therapist, recreational therapist and Hospice volunteers. The team works in partnership with community resources to provide an easy transition to and from home.
