We offer a variety of services for those with a terminal illness including the visiting volunteer program, equipment loans, and coordination of services with other community organizations. Referrals to our palliative care program can be made to anyone including health care professionals, family members, friends, and even by the client themselves.
It takes strength and energy to care for a loved one who has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. You don’t have to do it alone. We offer caregiver support groups and resources. For more information click here.
