8 private bedrooms will support patients who are in the end stages of a life limiting illness and patients who require a brief stay to bring symptoms under control. The bedrooms will accommodate a family member overnight and each will have a private washroom. A tub/shower room for patients and shower room for families will be in this area.
A "Quiet Room" close to the bedrooms area, designed to suit person of any faith and will create a spiritual environment. A section to link the hospice to the hospital will be designed as an atrium with plants and large windows.
A living room that includes a children’s play area, comfortable seating, artwork, plants, TV/DVD, bookshelves and music. It will have a view to the gardens. A full kitchen/dining area that includes seating for families.
Centre of Excellence for Palliative Care
Our vision is that the Hospice Centre will be a resource for learning opportunities for professionals and volunteers who work with dying people and will provide space for creative and grief support programs. It will also allow for additional office/meeting space for the District Palliative Care Team.
