Palliative Care is an approach to care that improves quality of life by providing a full range of services for people who are in the final stages of their illness. Palliative Care or End of Life Care focuses on maintaining dignity and quality of life, pain and symptom management and support for families and caregivers through this difficult period.
Included in both in-patient palliative care suites at Four Counties Health Services and Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital, are many of the comforts of home including a walk in shower in the bathroom, a couch and chair that each pull out to a bed and a kitchenette. Ensuring both patient and family comfort in a home like setting is a clear priority.
The grand opening of the Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital Palliative Care Suite was held on June 26, 2019 was made possible through the commitment made by the Rotary Club of Strathroy and generous donations from many individuals and organizations.
