End of Life
The Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre offers five dedicated beds for Palliative End of Life Care.
These Palliative beds offer pain and symptom management in a warm and comfortable environment.
The dedicated members of the interprofessional team work together to provide compassionate and supportive care to our patients and their loved ones. They are committed to meeting the emotional, spiritual, and unique needs of each of our clients.
Our client-centered approach to care ensures that dignity is maintained, and offers comfort, care, and hope to all those who need this service.
Palliative Care beds are located on 2 West. The palliative program provides pain and symptom management, combined with emotional and spiritual support, to patients at end of life.
Care is provided to patients by an inter-professional team that offers pastoral care, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy services, dietary services, physiotherapy, social work, speech and language pathology, and therapeutic recreation.
The care team also encourages a support network among patients, family, and staff.
