Victoria hospice?

Victoria hospice?

Hi I found victoria hospice on line but wondered about recommendations for bringing up this topic to father who I’m sure will want to stay at home. He might consider it though once very unwell and needing more healthcare. Would want a small, highly educated and higher end type of setting. Thanks for your ideas.

Has your Dad met with a palliative care team yet? I replied to your other post with links to Canadian Virtual Hospice they have great info about having these important conversations.

What my family did was we asked my Dad his wishes and he wanted to die at home. His palliative care doc also recommended putting him on the list for a hospice bed in case he changed his mind or he needed more care than could be offered at home. He did end up passing away at home. He had a great nurse who was there daily and supported us a lot in his final days.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Lacey
