Palliative care open house at Toronto East General Hospital

Categories: Care.

National Hospice Palliative Care Week takes place May 4 to 10 with the theme of dispelling myths about palliative care.

Some of the myths about palliative care include: it is for old people, it means one is close to death or that doctors and care providers have given up on the patient, and that palliative care is only for those with cancer.

The open house will showcase available supports for those and their families living with life-limiting illness.

The event is also a chance to speak with members of the hospital’s palliative care unit.
