For cancer patients or those with a life-limiting illness who are staying at an inpatient unit at Centenary or General, our oncology and palliative care teams provide assessment, consultation, support, and end of life care. The oncology and palliative care teams help manage pain and other physical and/or emotional symptoms, and provide compassionate and coordinated care to help make our patients stay as comfortable as possible.
We are focused on making each patient’s stay as safe and as comfortable as possible, and part of this experience is having a strong support system around.
Equipment: Sleeper Chairs
Your donation would support the purchase of Sleeper Chairs to help make our patients and their family’s stay as comfortable as possible.
These will impact our patients by:
- Allowing family members to stay overnight with their loved ones in our inpatient care programs; and,
- Providing a comfortable sleep space for caregivers and or a support person for admitted patients.
