Palliative and chronic care
The first priority of our palliative care providers is to acknowledge the delicate position of those facing life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. Palliative care aims to improve a person's quality of life through improved symptom management while providing psychosocial, emotional and spiritual support. Our registered nurses, registered practical nurses and certified personal support workers strive toward enhancing your loved one's quality of life and providing excellent care through all phases of his or her illness.
Our nurses and personal support workers know each individual is unique. They understand the positive effect optimal pain and symptom management can have on a loved one and his/her caregivers. Constant assessment, timely medical care, and the correct medications administered by careful and attentive assistants are the vital components of effective pain and symptom management.
We are passionate about delivering palliative care with compassion and the utmost respect for our clients and their loved ones' personal wishes and beliefs. Our registered nurses and registered practical nurses will assist you and your loved ones with quality pain and symptom relief and will be there to respond to any concerns you may have regarding your loved one. Our certified personal support workers will provide you with the relief, care and support you need, including companionship, personal hygiene, housekeeping and meal planning and preparation.
We are here to help you and your loved one to experience an enhanced quality of life on a continual and individualized basis. Whether you need 24/7 assistance, several visits a week, or a few hours to go grocery shopping, we will provide compassionate and respectful care for the ones in your life that need it the most.
