WHAT IS A HOSPICE?

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?

A family physician, hospital physician, or Home Care health care provider will submit a referral form for the person who is in need of palliative care. 

Our hospice is open to people who reside in northern Saskatchewan. 

We welcome referrals earlier than the three month time frame as we want      our guests to prepare for when the time comes. 

                                                When a room is available, a patient who has three months or less time to                                                        live will be admitted at the Rose Garden Hospice. 

                                                Please contact our office 306-764-9620 or email at:                                                                                      adminassist@rosegardenhospice.ca for a referral form.
