Hospice Services supports Clients at the end stages of life and their Caregivers. Our team provides practical, physical and emotional support to maintain comfort and quality of life for the Client as a complement to professional medical care.
Our services also provide essential support and respite to a Caregiver supporting a loved one at home. We are sensitive to personal, cultural and religious beliefs and practices and work in collaboration with our Clients to coordinate and deliver individualized care.
Through Hospice Services and with the support of a member of our team, Clients can access: Hospice Case Management services, Complementary Therapy, and Visiting Volunteer support. All FREE of charge.
Individuals seeking the services of our hospice program are assigned a Case Manager. The Case Manager provides information and education, works with the Client and Caregiver to identify any additional support needs, works with other organizations to obtain services, coordinates care, and works with the Visiting Volunteer to provide support in the home.
We have a team of volunteers who have received intensive training in the delivery of support services to Clients at the end of life. Our volunteers are caring and compassionate, providing companionship, practical and physical assistance, as well as emotional and spiritual care to the Clients they support. Visiting Volunteers also play an important role in providing respite for family and Caregivers.
Hospice Services are enhanced by our team of registered Complementary Therapists who volunteer their services to both Hospice Clients and their Caregivers to enhance quality of life and assist with the physical and emotional challenges faced at end of life. Complementary Therapy Services include:
- Registered Massage Therapy
- Expressive Arts
- Therapeutic Touch
- Cranial Sacral Therapy
