Because at the end of life, life still comes first.

A palliative care home and day centre offering free, high-quality palliative care services.

St. Raphael’s is a grassroots charitable organization with a dual vocation: a 12-bed palliative care home and the first palliative day centre on the Island of Montreal. We offer free, high-quality palliative care in one of the most densely populated areas of Montreal to people living with an incurable illness. With respect and compassion, we welcome people from all walks of life, regardless of their social condition, ethnic origin, sexual orientation and gender identity or religious beliefs.


Despite COVID-19, we continue to welcome palliative care patients and their families, complying with all government measures.

Because the safety and well-being of our patients and their loved ones is our top priority, we remind you that

– In all situations, maximum 3 visitors in the patient’s room at once.
– Patient’s partner and children may visit anytime.
– All other visitors (friends, other family members, other children, grandchildren, etc.) maximum 2 per 24 hours.
