Hospital-Based Palliative Care - Waterloo Wellington

A hospital provides palliative care services for people who are in the final stages of their illness. Palliative care focuses on treating the impact that an illness has on patients, and is often provided in addition to other care that focuses on treating the illness itself. These may include medical care, pain and symptom management, consultation, specialty units, volunteer visiting, counselling and bereavement services.
