More Details

Our hospice care team focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of individuals with incurable illness or chronic disease — providing comfort and compassionate care when the hope of a cure is no longer possible. A typical palliative care team may include doctors, social workers, nurses, pastoral workers, physiotherapists and volunteers providing emotional and spiritual care for the resident and their family.

Marianhill’s Hospice Palliative Care Unit consists of three private rooms, a lounge and kitchen — a peaceful, private environment where clients and their families spend valuable time together during the dying process.

The main components of palliative care are:
– pain and symptom management
– social, psychological, emotional and spiritual support
– caregiver support
