Alternate Short-Stay Palliative Beds: a new service offered to our Community Hospice Clients

Choosing to die at home can come with some uncertainty—what happens if the primary caregiver is suddenly unable to provide care and support?  Knowing this can happen for different reasons, the Community Hospice Palliative Care Service now offers Short-Stay Palliative Beds that can be accessed at any time during the last 12 months of life.

These short-stay beds can be accessed for:

  1. Symptom Management—stabilize medications and pain management interventions and return home in comfort.
  2. Caregiver Education—come in and learn how to provide care to your loved one from our expert clinical team and return home with confidence.
  3. Caregiver Relief—let our residential hospice team look after you for a short stay while your caregiver is away, giving both peace of mind that all care needs are being looked after.
