I or my family member would like to have a natural death at home. Is it possible?

The ability to make personal choices for health care is important. Most Northerners are resilient, self-reliant and independent by nature . Therefore providing services that can help them stay that way are important in every community, no matter how small. Our Home and Community Care program values collaboration.

"All clients, or their family or other caregiver as is appropriate, are involved to the fullest possible extent in decisions affecting their care and environment."

End-of-Life Care and Hospice Palliative Care can be provided in your own home, in the community or in an assisted living residence or a residential care facility. Once you are registered with our hospice palliative care program, your health care team will ensure that you have the knowledge and the understanding of your situation to enable you to make informed choices.

More information about our End-of-Life and Hospice Palliative Care services can be found on our website, under:  End-of-Life Care / Hospice Palliative Care.
