Palliative Care Support is for persons and families facing death and/or bereavement.
We believe that all life and creation are a gift from God. We believe that each resident is uniquely created in the image of God, with a mind and spirit, endowed with individual characteristics, personalities and capacities, and the right to enjoy quality of life and care while at our Home.
We further believe that death is a natural process within the life cycle. As residents pass through this last phase of the life cycle, our palliative care program provides holistic resident care, comfort and support, respecting the dignity, rights and wishes of each resident.
Specifically, the palliative care program includes personal, medical and emotional care, pain and symptom management, and spiritual and bereavement support and assistance. It is the desire of our Home to support the individual decisions of care and treatment which respect the life and wishes of each resident, based on mutual and timely sharing of information by the Home, resident and resident families.
As a faith centered charitable Home, the Leamington Mennonite Home strives to ensure that the Palliative Care Program is responsive to the individual needs and personal wishes of each resident and is reflective of our biblical mandate to:
Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
