RBC Foundation helps improve Palliative Care

RBC Foundation

Every year families in Regina and southern Saskatchewan are faced with the emotional and physical challenges of a loved one with a terminal illness or severely life limiting condition. Our Palliative Care program helps provide home or hospital care for palliative patients during their illness, and also empowers their families to care for their sick loved ones, to prepare for and to cope with death, and to ultimately heal and re-join an active life in the community. Last year, Palliative Care Services served 750 palliative patients from Regina and southern Saskatchewan, as well as their families, through both in-hospital and home care.
A new $60,000 commitment from RBC Foundation, in support of the palliative care program, will help us make much needed investments in in equipment used every day by patients and families, including patient beds, lift chairs and walkers.

Every day our palliative care teams compassionately deliver end-of-life care within the hospital setting as well as through palliative homecare, providing medical care, social work, spiritual care and bereavement counseling.  “The important work palliative staff and volunteers do is very private and often unseen. Quality palliative care makes deep and meaningful difference to families and patients every day”, says Jessica Rawn, Director Development, Hospitals of Regina Foundation. “We thank RBC Foundation for making a donation that will improve the quality of palliative care available to everyone in Regina and southern Saskatchewan.”
