Palliative Care Community Services

Résidence Desjardins: specialized in palliative care service

Palliative care is a unique type of health care service that treats seniors with life-threatening or terminal conditions. The primary purpose of palliative care services is to continue to provide care for seniors who are at the end of their lives, to keep them as comfortable as possible. This service also encourages family members to spend quality time with their loved one and to participate in any activities that the patient may have always wanted to do.

Palliative care is of the utmost importance when nearing end of life to assure the individua receives the primary personal attention they need and deserve. The regular activities of daily life become extremely limited and making sure these seniors are cared for properly is the main focus at Résidence Desjardins.

Why do you need palliative care services for your loved one?

Au lieu d’aller à l’hôpital pour un séjour prolongé, pourquoi ne pas opter pour les services de soins palliatifs offerts par une maison de retraite communautaire? Choisir entre des soins palliatifs à domicile ou dans une résidence est difficile pour toutes les familles. Il est important que tous les malades, surtout les personnes âgées, aient la chance de passer les dernières années ou les derniers mois de leur vie dans le plus grand confort qui soit.

Les services de soins palliatifs offerts à la Résidence Desjardins permettent à votre être cher de vivre dans sa propre chambre et de profiter de la présence de sa famille, tout en étant entouré d’aidants et d’infirmières hautement qualifiés qui l’aident à obtenir des soins de qualité et à demeurer aussi à l’aise que possible.

We provide 24 hours per day, seven days a week care.

Personal care. These personal care services include meal preparation, bathing, eating, mobility, and companionship. We may also offer other personal care services that serve our clients’ unique needs.

Transportation. If your loved one needs a ride to a doctor’s appointment or a social event, we can provide the ride. Also, we can go shopping and put the groceries away, too.
