Hospice care is compassionate comfort care, as opposed to curative care, for people facing a terminal illness with a prognosis of six months or less (based on their Physician’s views). Our team provides patients and their loved ones meaningful time together when the primary focus becomes comfort and quality of life. Hospice is not a place but, rather a full range of services which put patients and families in control while journeying with them through their last months together.
In-home support is available for those hospice patients who wish to remain in their own homes for their final days, weeks, or months. Jasmine’s specialised team will visit the home as needed, providing symptom relief, emotional support, and education on what to expect during this time. Jasmine nurses are also available 24/7 via phone or for urgent bedside visits as necessary.
For more ‘round-the-clock care, patients can be transferred to the Jasmine Villa – a beautiful home-like setting allowing for patients and families to enjoy 24-hour support. A patient’s symptoms can more easily be monitored and assuaged by the Jasmine team who take on the full responsibility of medical care. The family may still visit and stay by the patient’s side, enjoying fellowship and emotional support at the Villa.Tour the Jasmine Villa
Holistic therapies are often used to bring a higher quality of life and enhance patient-centered care. From massage and aromatherapy to pet visits and even Reiki, Jasmine has a team of qualified professionals who can provide these specialised services to elevate our patients’ quality of life and experience while navigating their illness.
