Home hospice palliative care provides physical, emotional, social and spiritual care in the home to comfort and improve the quality of life for those living with or dying from advanced illness.

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses – whatever the diagnosis. End-of-life care provides comfort, dignity and quality-of-life care for people with life-limiting illnesses and support for family and friends. The focus is on comfort care, such as pain control, rather than care aimed at curing illness.

What to expect

People often wish to spend as much time as possible at home, including remaining at home until death. If this is what you want, we will work with you, your family and your doctor to make the necessary arrangements to provide your end-of-life care at home.
