Palliative Care

As an organization committed to Cultivating Happiness in Daily Life, we have leaned on our Purpose to establish a ground-breaking approach, where palliative care is not the end but a vibrant continuum of life. In cultivating happiness through a palliative approach to care, we redefine our traditional understanding by focusing not just on the end-of-life moments, but on living each day to its fullest.

Advanced Care Planning

Making an advance care plan will ensure that your journey in long-term care is a positive one. It is a process of reflection and communication, a time to consider values and wishes, and to let others know what care is preferred should an individual become incapable of making decisions about their care.
