WRHA Palliative Care PROGRAM

What is Palliative Care?
(Also referred to as End of Life Care or Hospice Palliative Care)

Palliative care is an approach to care which focuses on comfort and quality of life for people of all ages affected by life-threatening illness.

Where are palliative care services delivered?

The Regional Palliative Care Program is based on the belief that quality end-of life care can be provided in a variety of settings. Specialized palliative care units and hospice settings exist for patients whose needs cannot be met at home or in hospital.

Our Team

The work of the Regional Palliative Care Program is accomplished by a large group of individuals working together to support quality palliative and end-of-life care.

We understand that while looking into palliative care services, some may be looking for information about Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID). MAID is not connected with the WRHA Palliative Care Program, but is a distinct service.
