The Balfour Mount Palliative Care Unit
Located at the Glen Site but serving all MUHC patients, the palliative care unit offers holistic care through an interdisciplinary team of nurses, physicians, psychologists, a social worker, music therapist, spiritual care worker and a host of other allied health professionals. Together the team provides expert care to approximately 12 patients and their families.
The unit offers 12 private rooms, a therapeutic whirpool bath, a family room with kitchenette, and space for family members to sleep. Volunteers provide each room with freshly cut flowers and coordinate a twice weekly cake and tea service with live music as well as a weekly wine and cheese service. In addition, the Art for Healing Foundation has donated beautiful art work to create a healing space for all.
Bereavement support services are offered to family members following the death of a loved one. Memorial services for friends, family, and staff are held monthly.
