Residential hospice focuses on living – not dying. It empowers individuals with a palliative diagnosis to choose how they navigate their final journey while helping their families cope with and prepare for their loved one’s final stages of life. Free and meaningful care is provided in a supportive, flexible and home-like environment via an interdisciplinary team of health-care professionals and volunteers.
Benefits of hospice care for residents and family members includes:
- Assistance with comfort measures and pain and symptom management.
- Private room.
- Unrestricted visiting hours.
- Free parking.
- Ability to live freely (e.g. flexible meals based on each resident’s choice, pets welcome, bathe/shower at leisure, go outside as desired, etc.)
- Access to a wide range of non-medical service and program options including emotional and spiritual support, arts and music and holistic healing practices.
