Being sick steals your quality of life: you have to put up with the disruption of plans, the stress and worry, the wasted time, the pain and suffering and the medical appointments. It doesn't just affect one life - patients, families and caregivers are all affected.
The Hospice Society's EVERY DAY COUNTS program is geared to adding quality to life one person at a time. In the face of serious illness, we help people live well. We want people to find their best way forward with the confidence and ease to live life even though they are sick.
"Best practices in palliative care focus on providing support long before someone is admitted to the hospice. Support in the community with education, relaxation and counselling for patients, their families and caregivers can boost quality of life and help make every day count."
