Our programs and services are offered throughout the community to meet a variety of needs for individuals, families and care providers. We work closely with health care professionals and service providers in the community. Our affiliations include community care access centres, hospitals, health centres, community agencies, doctors, nursing and home care agencies, pharmacies, faith communities and other hospices. We also develop programs with other health care organizations to educate professionals about advances in hospice palliative care.
With a focus on the individual we facilitate an integrated approach to care. The goal is to provide seamless support that address the needs of the individual when, where and how they want it. Our partners include health care professionals and volunteers who have prior experience working with life-limiting illnesses: RNs, physicians, RPNs, PSWs (personal support workers), care coordinators, physiotherapy and occupational therapists, social workers, pharmacists, nutritionists, directors of local hospitals and health centres, funeral home directors, and members of the clergy.
