In honour of National Hospice Palliative Care Week (May 1-7), the Cape Breton Post is recognizing members of our local palliative care team in Getting to Know features throughout the month of May.
Getting to Know: Anne Morrow
Anne is one of the volunteers with the flower program, which began more than 20 years ago and still has some of its original volunteers. The “Flower Ladies” meet each week, make up small flower arrangements and deliver them to those in the palliative care service.
Hospice palliative care medical services alleviate pain, with an emphasis on comfort and improving life, not curing the disease. Hospice palliative care is an holistic approach. The physical, social, psychological, emotional and spiritual are treated as needed or desired by the patient.
