Nova West Island offers specialized care and support to persons suffering from cancer or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Our mission in palliative care is to enable people to stay at home with their loved ones as long as desired.
Professional staff and dedicated volunteers work closely with clients, caregivers and community health care agencies to provide comprehensive, compassionate, quality care.
Home nursing visits, arranged in collaboration with clients and/or family members allow for assessments, teaching, symptom management, accomplishment of nursing tasks and always active listening. Twenty-four hour on-call service.
The need for involvement of other team members (Home Health Aides, Volunteers, Carousel for children) is regularly evaluated and arranged.
Family or client can telephone for assistance or have referral sent from CLSC, hospital or doctor.
If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us at: 514-695-8335
