Palliative Care

Hospice Palliative Care Patient Services

“Healing is about radically coming into the present…healing is about letting go of the past, of the future…healing is about attending to my whole person needs.”

              Dr. Balfour Mount, Father of Canadian Hospice Palliative Care      

Hospice Palliative Care aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying. At North Wellington Health Care, our palliative care providers promote comfort for the person who is dealing with a life-threatening illness when the focus of care is no longer to cure. We take a holistic approach, viewing the patient and family as the unit of care within the psychological, social, cultural, spiritual and practical domains. Our approach is multi-disciplinary, drawing on the unique knowledge and skills of the palliative care team in order to manage pain and other distressing symptoms.

“To Cure sometimes, To relieve often, To comfort always”
