Home Healthcare Equipment
In particular cases when a patient is receiving palliative care at home, they may require additional equipment to treat their pain and maintain a high quality of life. The Society provides home healthcare equipment free of charge when it is deemed necessary by the palliative care physician or nurse. (When equipment is not available through the Red Cross.) The Society supports a broad based financial assistance fund that is administered through the palliative care social worker and, in exceptional circumstances, provides 24-hour nursing care at home when requested by a physician.
To support and promote compassionate care for individuals and their loved ones who are living with a life-threatening illness.
