Death and Dying

Every moment is precious when death is near.

The philosophy of hospice palliative care is to help people live until they die. Hospice palliative care is an approach to caring for people who are living with a life-threatening illness, no matter what their age. The focus of care is on achieving comfort and ensuring respect for the person nearing death and maximizing quality of life for them, their family and loved ones.

The resources offered below will help you navigate through this time and offer support to someone who is dying.
