Referrals to our palliative care program can be made by anyone including health care professionals, family members, friends, and even by the client themselves. To make a referral please fill out this Palliative Care Referral form and fax to 613-354-8233, or drop it off at the Hospice Lennox & Addington office.
Following referral, an assessment is done by qualified staff in order to determine an appropriate care plan. A care plan may consist of any of the following services.
Visiting Volunteer Program
Many of our palliative care clients are assigned a volunteer to provide end of life companionship. Clients are carefully matched with a volunteer to ensure compatibility. Volunteer visits are then made to the client at each other’s convenience. Visiting volunteers offer companionship to the client at the end of life and can also help with shopping, physical support, and emotional support.
