What is palliative care?
When a cure is no longer possible, palliative care is a combination of active and compassionate therapies to provide comfort, support and quality of life to individuals and families who are living with a life-limiting illness. Palliative care strives to address physical, psychological, social, cultural, spiritual and practical needs of patients and their families, while maintaining dignity and the best quality of life possible.
What we support...
For over 34 years, Regina Palliative Care Inc. (RPCI), a registered charity, has been privileged to provide financial support to the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region Palliative Care Services. Through generous donors, RPCI supports the acute care palliative care program delivery, enhancement of palliative care core services, much needed medical equipment, home care and hospice. These programs offer quality of life, comfort and care for those dealing with a life limiting illness and bereavement. RPCI also provides funding for continued educational opportunities to provide the most current training for staff and volunteers.
RPCI financially supports the purchasing of much needed medical equipment and furnishings at the Pasqua Hospital Palliative Unit. RPCI provides funding to purchase specialized equipment such as pressure relief mattresses, ceiling tracks, portable ramps and electric beds that allow individuals and their families to live as fully and comfortably as possible in their homes.
These services, programs and specialized equipment offer enhanced quality of life, comfort and care to palliative patients and their families as they navigate through their life ending journey.
