Our Long Term Goal:
Partnering with Community Senior Facilities to Provide End of Life Support in Collaboration with the Cochrane and Area Hospice Society
The Cochrane and Area Hospice Society has a longer term interest in create collaborative partnerships with local senior care facilities. The goal is to create the availability of dedicated palliative rooms (beds) that would allow those experiencing an end-of-life journey to remain in community during this process.
Models of this type of collaboration are presently under assessment to ensure that a model is developed that suits the needs of the Cochrane and Area community.
