Palliative Home Care

Palliative Care is a family concern.
Palliative care at home provides comfort and relief from pain while maintaining dignity. Qualicare Toronto’s nurses and personal support workers (PSWs) work as a dedicated team to help patients and their families with both physical and emotional needs. We provide the extra support needed to improve quality of life.
When a life-threatening illness can no longer be cured, or when attempting a cure will result in lower quality of life than letting it progress, receiving palliative care at home with the help of Qualicare instead of in a hospital or other facility provides many benefits:
Living in the comfort of your own home
Taking control of your own care and home environment
Being surrounded by family and friends
Continuity of care and caregivers
Collaborating with CCAC services and your entire healthcare team
Regular nurse reports and communication at your convenience
Access to hospital beds and equipment
Flexible scheduling to suit family needs and manage costs'
Experienced and compassionate Qualicare nurses and caregivers can help the patient and family maintain more of a sense of normalcy during a difficult time. Qualicare provides a dedicated Personal Care Manager (PCM), a qualified nurse who will become a trusted confidant, offer support to each family member, and maintain an open dialogue among the patient, family, and healthcare team.
Our PCMs know how to navigate the Ontario healthcare system and will advocate on the family’s behalf to access resources and maximize government-funded services. You can spend more time together instead of stressfully interacting with Ontario’s over-burdened healthcare and social work professionals. When the CCAC is involved, our PCM coordinates with their Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner to minimize your costs and ensure consistent and continuous care.

Our top goal is to bring peace of mind and relieve stress for you and your family.
