WYCFF offers palliative care in hospice

ST. JOHN’S: The hospice at the St. Martin’s Home of the White and Yellow Cross Care Foundation is up and running for one year and specializes in providing palliative care. 

Hospice care is a type of healthcare that focuses on treating a terminally ill client’s symptoms and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs at the end of life. Hospice care prioritizes comfort and quality of life by reducing pain and suffering.

In the local hospice, the client has a private room; and rooming-in when desired is allowed. Family and loved ones of clients are welcome, even to sleep over when this is preferred. All bedrooms have double doors to the porch and garden where small gatherings with family and friends can take place. The hospice has a fully equipped kitchen if visitors wish to cook a meal for their loved ones.  

The hospice has an around-the-clock professional nursing staff team. The team consists of healthcare workers, who collaborate with the physical therapist, speech therapist, and occupational therapist to provide the highest quality care.

To get more information or to make an appointment to visit the hospice, call +1 721 548 4431 ext. 416 or email isnijder@whiteyellowcross.org
