Exceptional, free, end-of-life care attuned to the whole person.

St. Raphael’s takes a holistic approach to care encompassing the physical, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual well-being of each patient while also supporting the informational and emotional needs of those closest to the patient.

This approach is based on creating a circle of care, which is provided through an interdisciplinary team that includes physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, therapists (massage, art, music, physio), spiritual care providers, as well as many trained volunteers.

The focus of the health care team is to provide comfort to the patient, rather than placing emphasis on curing a life-limiting illness.
