Living Well at Home

Living Well at Home

Many people tell us they want to live at home for as long as possible.

Home is a familiar place, comfortable and reassuring. It might also be a place of family and friends, togetherness and memories.

Reality is, though, living at home with a terminal illness can be difficult not only for the person, but for family caregivers. 

You do not have to do this alone. We are here to help you. 

We can provide medical, emotional and social supports right from the time of diagnosis to improve quality of life and well-being, for everyone. 

It’s about helping you to live well, no matter what life presents.

Our programs and services are offered at no cost to our Niagara community.

Palliative Care Outreach Team (PCOT)

Our outreach team of palliative care specialists provides medical and emotional support for people and their families, in partnership with primary care providers. 

The team can help if you are having trouble managing pain and other physical symptoms of your illness. Or maybe you would like to have some emotional support and speak with one of our counsellors about a difficult topic, worries and fears, or feelings about your diagnosis or the future. 

Everyone works together to help you, all in the comfort of your own home.

Visiting Volunteers

Living at home with a terminal illness can feel lonely and isolating. 

Visiting Volunteers are good listeners who enjoy offering their time and companionship, providing non-medical support. 

Currently, due to pandemic guidelines, they connect by phone for some friendly conversation. Otherwise, when in-person programs resume, they enjoy going for walks, playing cards or a board game, or helping out with a hobby or other activity. Or, maybe you’d simply like to talk about your thoughts and feelings. 

While the Visiting Volunteer is with you, family caregivers can take some time for themselves too.

Day Hospice

Day Hospice

Day Hospice is about companionship and connecting with others in a safe a supportive space.

People tell us one of the best things about Day Hospice is the opportunity to relax, exhale and many times forget about treatments, medical tests and even their illness, while having a good time with other participants and volunteers.  

There are a lot of activities to choose from including cards and games,  trivia challenges, arts and crafts, and listening to music. Most of all, there’s a lot of conversation, laughter and sharing. 

Meanwhile, family caregivers can take some time for themselves, too.
