WHAT IS PALLIATIVE CARE?
Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious, terminal illness or disease.
It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BE ADMITTED INTO THE HOSPICE?
The Hospice will be open to persons resident in northern Saskatchewan and their immediate family members.
Individuals must be in need of palliative care. When a room is available, a patient who has three months or less time to live will be able to register with the Rose Garden Hospice. A referral from the person’s family physician will be necessary.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS TO THOSE IN NEED?
The cost of this care would be free to those in need of the service.
Costs will be covered by the Provincial Government, foundation funding events, in memoriam donations, bequests and other gifts, specific program funding or grants, private, and/or corporate support.
