Hospice at the Views
Hospice at The Views provides personalized hospice care in a residential setting for individuals nearing the end of life, as well as support for their families and loved ones. This residential hospice care complements existing services which support hospice and palliative care at home, in care facilities and in the hospital. While many individuals prefer to receive care in their own home, there are people and their families who need the supports offered in a residential hospice with professional, dedicated and compassionate staff.
Hospice at The Views offers four private rooms with ocean and/or garden views, characterized by peace, dignity and privacy where you and your family can receive needed care and feel at home during this tender time. Rooms feature direct access to a lovely outdoor patio and garden, private refrigerator, television, WiFi and bathrooms designed with your optimal privacy, safety and care in mind. Additionally, each room has a comfortable sleeper chair as an overnight option for your companion or guest. There are shared spaces for family and guests, including a cozy family lounge with a fireplace, television and a kitchenette. Visitors are always welcome, including well behaved family pets.
An integral part of this setting is the care centre, where your physician, physicians specializing in palliative care and professional staff will coordinate your 24 hour personalized care, based on your wishes. Well trained hospice volunteers are available to offer emotional support and a compassionate presence.
As you consider the care that will best meet your needs during these very tender times, please talk with your family doctor, nurse practitioner, Hospice Society counsellor or Home & Community Care health professional to see if Hospice at The Views is the right choice for you.
