Palliative Care in Edmonton

One of the most important ways to comfort a loved one during the process of letting go of life is to be present. If you or your loved one needs palliative care, we will be honoured to provide you the support you deserve.

What Is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is care provided to someone who has a serious illness or is about to pass away due to old age. This time is quite emotional, which is why palliative care is necessary. During the last few weeks of life, there will be various serious changes, which is why you or your loved one needs a compassionate, gentle, and calm support system. Changes might be reflected in lack of appetite, longer sleep patterns, less energy, or withdrawals from friends and family. All of these behavioural changes are necessary and normal.

For more information about the end-of-life process, talk to your family physicians or primary health care providers.
