Our bilingual palliative care unit at the Élisabeth Bruyère Hospital provides care to patients and families requiring in-hospital care. Patients may be admitted for a short period of time to manage difficult pain and symptoms, and will be discharged once these needs are met.

Other patients may be admitted for care at the end-of-life when their care needs cannot be met in other settings.

We work closely with patients and their families to provide care that respects a diversity of cultures and beliefs.

The Regional Palliative Consultation Team is a partnership between Bruyère Continuing Care and the Champlain Community Care Access Centre that supports family physicians and primary health care teams that care for palliative patients in the community. This includes care offered at home, retirement homes, long-term care facilities and community hospitals.
