Palliative Care in Edmonton

When your loved one is letting go of life, it’s important they have someone, like a designated palliative caregiver, present who can provide care and support. If you or your loved one needs palliative care, it would be our privilege to provide you with the short or long-term care and support you deserve.

What Is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is care provided to individuals with a terminal illness or those approaching the end of life, often due to old age. This period can be highly emotional, which is why palliative care is important. Significant changes may occur during the final weeks of life, necessitating calm, gentle, and compassionate support from loved ones. These changes might be reflected in longer sleep patterns, less energy, a lack of appetite, or withdrawals from friends and family. All of these behavioural changes are normal and necessary.

For additional information about the end-of-life process, consult your family physicians or primary health care providers.
