The West Island Palliative Care Residence allows terminally ill patients to live their final days in comfort and with dignity in a warm, home-like environment, close to their family, and in their community. The Residence has 23 beds making it the largest freestanding palliative care residence in Canada.

The primary care goal at the Residence is to uphold the quality of life for all patients and to support their families by seeking to understand the unique concerns and wishes of each patient. The Residence’s team of physicians, nurses, counselors, psychosocial care workers and volunteers work together to address their physical symptoms, as well as their emotional, social and spiritual needs.
