PALLIATIVE CARE

PROVIDING CARE AND COMFORT

PALLIATIVE CARE IS MEDICAL CARE DESIGNED TO ADDRESS THE
NEEDS OF RESIDENTS AND PATIENTS WITH A TERMINAL ILLNESS. A
TERMINAL ILLNESS IS DEFINED AS “ANY ILLNESS WHERE DEATH IS
EXPECTED WITHIN SIX MONTHS OR LESS IF THE DISEASE RUNS ITS
NORMAL COURSE”.

The Palliative care program addresses the entire scope of care. We strive to
establish, for those living with a terminal illness, a degree of care that not
only treats their medical needs but also includes their family and friends in
their care.

The staff’s goal is to identify and implement interventions that meet the
individual needs of the resident, patient, and their family while attending to
quality-of-life issues that they are faced with. The program addresses medical
symptoms, pain, nutrition, psychosocial needs, spiritual needs, and financial/
legal concerns.
