Palliative Care Services
What is Palliative Care?
The goal and mission of Palliative Care is to improve the quality of life for people with serious illnesses. But, contrary to popular believe, palliative care doesn’t just serve the ill. Instead, it focuses on improving the life and providing comfort to those with life-threatening illnesses, as well as relieving the family of any stressors they may face.
Retire-At-Home’s Palliative Care in Montreal, Laval, and South Shore, is holistic, meaning we consider the whole of the patients health and lifestyle, and centering our care around what they patient believes is important to them. A care plan is developed based on the wishes and goals of the patients and the families, and focuses on maximizing the quality of life for the patient, family, and loved ones near the end of the patient’s life.
Palliative Care addresses different aspects of end-of-life care by:
- managing pain and other symptoms
- providing social, psychological, cultural, emotional, spiritual and practical support needs
- supporting caregivers
- providing support for bereavemen
