When is a building more than a building?

  • When it is filled with people dedicated to serving the needs of the very ill and their families.

  • When it becomes "home" for a patient during the final days/weeks of their terminal illness.

How do you measure the value of the Eaton Communtiy Palliative Care Residences?

  • The value is measured in caring..."a special kind of caring" for people in the final phase of a terminal illness.

  • The value is measured in quality...managing symptoms so that the patient's last days may be spent with dignity.

  • The value is measured in dignity...allowing an individual to maintain their independence and ability to participate in their care as long as possible.

How does Hospice differ from other types of healthcare?

  • Hospice offers palliative (comfort-oriented), rather than curative treatment.

  • Hospice treats the person, not the disease.

  • Hospice emphasizes quality, rather than length of life

  • Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.

  • Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process.

  • Hospice considers the entire family the "unit of care".

  • Hospice offers help and support to the patient and family 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

This past year alone, we have had the honor and privilege, to provide services to over 400 families.

People like you, who realize the value and importance of these cost free services, make this care possible. By making a tax-deductible gift to Eaton Community Palliative Care, you help us continue to care for those in the final days or weeks of their life and support their loved ones during and after a death.

Can we count on your financial support at this time?
