End of life care is an important healthcare service that Santé provides for those nearing end of life. This type of care has many advantages including comfort care, pain management, and family support. However, end of life care is not without its challenges. Family may be resistant to a patient’s decision to end medical treatment. Caregivers may need respite to maintain their own mental and physical health. The team at Santé is here to help families and patients navigate these potential challenges. Here are a few to consider.
