Chatham-Kent & Leamington Residential Hospices
The Erie St. Clair LHIN is pleased to announce an investment into new Leamington and Chatham-Kent hospices. The new 10 bed hospices will receive on-going annual funding to ensure they are sustained in the communities.
While care at home is always the first option, the new hospice beds will provide both palliative care services and palliative pain management in a community-based setting. Residential hospice provides a variety of services designed to provide care and comfort in a peaceful and heart-felt environment and is an excellent companion program to the CCAC Palliative Care Outreach Team; a team which provides in-home support for those who face end-of-life needs.
Hospice services are a type of specialized care that have always met and exceeded client and family needs. The new hospices will build on that success and continue to help improve access, equity, and the quality of life for patients in Leamington and Chatham-Kent.
