End of Life Care

As a Christian organization, foundational to our work is the conviction that human life is a gift from God from the beginning of life until natural death. This grounds our commitment to provide the best end-of-life and palliative care possible in our organization. This is also why we reject any medical procedure that intentionally terminates a human life; it is contrary to Holy Scripture and thus incompatible with the Mission and Values of our organization.

In keeping with our Mission and Values we commit to assisting each dying person in our care and their loved ones to:

  • Make informed decisions about their end of life care.
  • Receive effective pain and symptom management to lessen pain and suffering
  • Access high-quality palliative care that encompasses support for the physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological dimensions of end-of-life for the dying person and their loved ones
