What we support...
Acute Care Palliative Care Unit
While most end-of-life care is delivered very effectively at home, hospitalization may occasionally be required for complex pain and symptom management and to ensure a good quality of living and dying.
The Palliative Care Unit is a 9 bed unit located on ward 3A at the Pasqua Hospital. Admissions to 3A are determined by the care required.
Medical care is provided by your family physician in consultation with one of the Palliative Care physicians.
The environment is one of serenity, comfort and professional support. The team provides holistic care based on the physical, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual needs of patients and families.
