Home Visiting/Respite Care
We also provide palliative care at home and have the same values as our hospital visiting service. We help to support the best possible quality of life for patients. We are more focused on the psyco-social component with these care visits. We focus on supporting emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their family and friends.
We here at Hospice receive referrals from local hospitals, Dr's, Health Care Nurses, individual community members and many others for this service. You don't need a referral you can call yourself.
The referrals we do recieve alert us that we have an individual in the community that is needing some type of support with visitations to help them through their difficult time.
Our Home Visiting Team is made of specifically trained volunteers that are available and flexible for day and time visiting clients in their homes or alternative place.
Volunteers will also provide respite support so family members can enjoy some much needed time to recooperate from being a care-giver.
