In an effort to help meet the growing demand for hospice palliative care resources, We Care Home Health Services(We Care) announced a partnership today with the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) to enhance end-of-life services and support networks acrossCanada and build hospice palliative care capacity by introducing knowledge, tools, and resources for Canadians.
CHPCA is the national voice for Hospice Palliative Care inCanada. Advancing and advocating for quality end-of-life/hospice palliative care in Canada, its work includes public policy, public education and awareness. The partnership between CHPCA and We Care will serve to build hospice palliative care capacity across the country by expanding knowledge, tools and professional resources. The partnership will be particularly relevant to the millions of caregivers who are desperately seeking viable choices and support services for loved ones confronting terminal illnesses. According to recent statistics from a CHPCA report, less than a third of Canadians that die annually have access to or receive hospice palliative and end-of-life services.
